The seven is for the racing footage; I'd have to give the film as a
whole something lower; this looks like a standard "programmer" from the
period. I've seen "TCR" several times, and this time decided to watch
it to try to determine where the racing footage was shot and what kind
of cars these are.
I have to (somewhat educatedly) guess that we're looking at the old
Jeffrey's Ranch Speedway in Burbank in the first racing sequence. It
was pretty close to the Warner back lot, and (according to racing
historian Harold Osmer) in operation from '31 to '35.
The stands are covered, and there are a lot of large trees close by, as
well as equestrian facilities, all three items definitely not the case
at Legion Ascot or Huntington Beach. I've been told that Culver City's
half mile of that period did not have any equestrian facilities,
either, which deals with all the tracks in the region in '31 and '32.
The cars in these shots are largely Ford-Model-A-block /
any-odd-freer-breathing-head, rear-drive, backyard/filling-station
bombs on Ford rails rather than anything from Harry Miller's shop in
nearby Vernon, though there might be an early Miller 200, 220 or 255
(the basis of the famed Leo-Goosen-designed, "Offy" 255/270 built by
Offenhauser & Brisko and, later, Meyer & Drake).
This is doubtful, however, as those engines and complete (usually two-
or three-year-old) Miller chassis rarely ran anywhere but Legion Ascot
in the LA area at that time.
The second (nighttime) sequence is at Legion Ascot, and its 20,000
seats look to be pretty full, which, even when they weren't shooting a
feature film, were pretty full even in the nadir of the Great
Depression. Veteran dirt track fans will note that Ascot's oiled
surface runs pretty much dust-free compared to the old horse track in
The third group of action sequences shot at the Brickyard feature
top-of-the-line Miller and Deusey rails, as well as several of the very
best drivers of the period including Fred Frame and Billy Arnold, both
Indy winners (1930 and 1932, respectively; Lou Schneider won the '31
race in the Bowes Seal Fast Special seen momentarily here). Careful
listeners will hear the unmistakable snarl of the early "Offy" fours in
Sadly, the sound era was just getting underway as the legendary Miller
91s and the incredible board tracks they ran on were phased out in '29.
Open-wheel racing in the '30s was -good-, but OW racing in the previous
decade (at tracks like Beverly Hills and Culver City) was as big -- and
spectacular, and fast -- then as NASCAR is now on mile ovals.
The Indy scenes feature the (more nearly "stock car") two-seaters and
"poor man's" engines that were mandated at the time to reduce costs and
break the high-tech/high-buck, Miller stranglehold of the late '20s.
There were Deusies, Fords and even Studebakers running the big tracks
in those days, but Harry Miller's cars and engines continued to
