The original and its influence
For his documentary On Any Sunday, Bruce Brown relied heavily on such daredevil bikers as Mert Lawwill, Malcolm Smith and Hollywood star Steve McQueen to bring excitement to the screen. With its rapid shots of motocross and desert racing, the film inspired the youth of the Seventies – and motivated many of today’s motorcycle competition professionals to start a racing career. On Any Sunday is not the only sports documentary from Bruce Brown, either. In 1964, his film The Endless Summer became arguably the surfing community’s greatest cult movie.
Bruce Brown's eldest son Dana has now produced a sequel to the epic motorcycle film his father created. Shot in 4K Ultra HD, On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter comes 43 years after the launch of the original to entice a new generation of bike racers.
