The Devil at Your Heels (1981) -- Hard to find, legendary Canadian documentary chronicling daredevil Ken Carter's epic five-year effort to jump a rocket car over a mile-long body of water. Not content with a normal jump, Ken Carter attempts a jump from Canada to the USA. You might think this documentary is a put-on after the first ten minutes - the kind of thing stunt-comedian 'Super Dave' Osborne might come up with - but it's further endorsement that truth is stranger (and funnier) than fiction. Star of the show is 'Mad Canadian' daredevil Ken Carter, whose speciality is jumping cars. His dream is to go one better than Evel Knievel's famous leap over the Snake River Canyon and build a ramp and car that will enable him to jump the St Lawrence seaway from the USA into Canada. He should have just used the Ambassador Bridge. The events that we watch unfold become a comedy of errors on a scale so monumental it practically lobbies for a renaming of Murphy's Law in honor of Carter.
