Tales of the Rat Fink DVD Movie

The legend of the world's greatest kustom car builder - Ed "Big Daddy" Roth

Voiced by John Goodman, Ann Margret, Jay Leno, Brian Wilson, Steve Austin, Matt Groening, Tom Wolfe, Robert Williams, Paul LeMat, Billy F. Gibbons, the Smothers brothers and many more!  The film focuses on Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, who gained fame for his sculpted custom cars - "The Beatnik Bandit", "Mysterion" and "The Outlaw" - and his cast of eye-popping cartoon characters.

From the award-winning director of Comic Book Confidential and Grass comes Tales of the Rat Fink, Ron mann's wildly inventive bio about the Renaissance man Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, who engineered a shift in mid-20th century culture with his customzied cars, "monster" t-shirts and rodent, Rat Fink.

Produced in 2006 and has a run time of 76 minutes.

Ed Roth was a giant as an artist as well as a behemoth as a man.  He and his fellow Kar Kustomizers worked in the only uniquely American art medium, the automobile.  He never thought of his creations simply as shells of molded sheet metal or fiberglass.  He always wanted you to see the engine, too, because the only American art form is not an object.  It's a kineticism.  Its materials are speed, momentum, excitement, and freedom, which is to say, the American Zeitgesit, except that we don't say zeitgeist.  We say, the spirit of American age.
