Documentary for Week 21: Monaco

A 1972 movie with a wanted director, a triple F1 World Champion, a cast consisting of Grace Kelly, Graham Hill and Ringo Starr, shot in Monaco, that hardly anyone has seen and was almost destroyed when the Technicolor Lab in London decided to clean up their archives and get rid of all their old negatives? 

Sounds like the perfect premise for a future documentary, but luckily Roman Polanski decided to restore the negatives and re-released Weekend of a Champion in 2013. The film follows Roman Polanski as he shadows his friend Jackie Stewart during the weekend of the 1971 Monaco Grand Prix.
