Many popular drivers at that time, Niki Lauda, ​​Jackie Stewart, James Hunt and others appear in the film. "One by One" is a documentary about the deadliness of Grand Prix racing, including footage of fatal racing accidents. The film was reissued as "The Quick and the Dead" in 1978 including the death of Tom Pryce at the 1977 South African Grand Prix and was later released also as "Champions Forever: The Formula One Drivers". Formula One drivers Peter Revson of the United States, Fran├žois Cevert of France, Jackie Stewart of Scotland, and Mike Hailwood of Great Britain are featured and share their personal philosophies, experiences and strategies. Some rare footage is included, like Jackie Stewart commenting the secrets of the Nordschleife while cruising the Ring in a cabriolet Rolls Royce, or on-board ride as Niki Lauda wrestles his BRM around the Montjuich Park. Or a trackside view of the carnage at Silverstone when Jody Scheckter lost control at the end of the first lap of the 1973 British Grand Prix.
