Synopsis

A master promoter who produced elaborate spectacles to sell bicycles and cars, Carl Fisher had already made a fortune and built a motor speedway in his native Indianapolis when he was seized by a vision. On a narrow strip of swampland near Miami, Fisher created a tropical paradise of sand and palm trees, then masterminded a dazzling sales campaign. It worked until a devastating hurricane and the Crash of 1929 brought an end to his dreams.
