The world was changing and a group of fast young women challenged attitudes, men and politics and won the coveted Le Mans in 1937
Description
George Eyston set racing records in the thirties that were unbeaten for decades. But the record of his all woman race team is little known. It was a time in America when women couldn't even write a check without a man's co-sign. But roaring around the countryside’s of the world a group of fast young women challenged the world of racing men. They were a team racing MG PA’s in 1935-37.They were brash enough and good enough to make it to the top – Le Mans. The European press dubbed them Eyston’s Dancing Daughters. The world accelerated. Racing took on political overtones across Europe. It was a time in the world when politics, music,women, and cars were moving ever faster. Few seem to know or care of the gathering storm in Europe.
About the author
Right out of SVA  Prueitt did illustrations for Saturday Evening Post, Travel Magazine, Fishing Magazine, The Reporter Magazine, Esquire promotion, and a lot of ad agencies. He got an ad assignment to go back stage at CBS TV and draw a live show.  What a jolt. Music, dance, acting, editing, color, cameras, directors – he fell in lust, broke his pencils and asked Lou Dorfsman for a job. At CBS TV he worked on every major show for five years: designing promotion, openings and special effects.
Prueitt taught design in motion, at night, at Pratt Institute – matriculated to BBDO advertising as a TV art director. Then to McCann Erickson advertising as Sr. Art Director/Writer/Producer. Started writing screenplays. Became Creative Director Sr VP for Jim Jordan working on Quaker, Zest, Welch’s, and  Butterfingers and every new pitch at the agency.  After directing for four production companies in NYC Prueitt started his own production company shooting hundreds of commercials around the world.  He was an Emmy judge for fifteen years. Prueitt has written twenty-three screenplays, three have been optioned. Prueitt is currently budgeting a coming of age comedy.
