Snake and Mongoo$e movie coming Sept. 6

by David Zatz on

Snake and MongooseThe Snake & Mongoo$e Movie is set to premiere in over twenty major markets on September 6, covering the friendly rivalry between Don Prudhomme (“the Snake”) and Tom McEwen (“the Mongoose”).

The movie covers the time when Hot Wheels was sponsoring both racers; Don Prudhomme was a highly successful drag racer at the time, earning the best win record in NHRA with his top fuel dragster and becoming the first to exceed 250 mph. His start and partnership with Tom McEwen are featured in the movie.

Jennifer Harrington caught up with Don Prudhomme and spoke with him about racing, the nickname “Snake,” his choice of Plymouths, and more, featured this week on allpar.
