Written by Steve Mandich:

Ken Carter is a genial, pudgy, cross-eyed doofus, who grows visibly fatter as The Devil at Your Heels progresses. He's a bit of a know-it-all who seems uncomfortable with silence, so he constantly rambles on about himself or his stunts, anything to avoid dead air. However, he really has just one thing to say: "I'm looking for the ultimate statement: 'Ken Carter, World's Greatest Daredevil.' Really, that's what it's about."

Carter grew up in a Montreal slum, where he played with rats as a child. As a teenager with only a fourth-grade education, he dropped out of school to perform car stunts with a team of traveling daredevils. Soon he was a solo act, jumping at racetracks all over North America. He developed into a consummate showman, earning the nickname "The Mad Canadian" for his death-defying antics.

Now, after 20 years of countless car jumps (and countless broken bones), Carter wants to transcend the small-potatoes daredevil circuit; he wants fame, glory, immortality. He sets out to make what he figures would be the greatest stunt of all-time: a rocket-powered car jump across the St. Lawrence Seaway, from Canada into the United States, covering a distance of one mile.

Carter sinks his last dime into the project, but has trouble raising the additional quarter-million dollars needed to pull it off. ABC eventually comes to the rescue, in exchange for airing the stunt on Wide World of Sports. The live broadcast is scheduled in a few short weeks, on September 25, 1976.

Construction begins on some farmland near Morrisburg, Ontario, across the seaway from upstate New York. Fifty acres are cleared to make way for a 1,400-foot long takeoff ramp, which would rise to 85 feet atop a massive earthen mound.

This is one of my favorite films of all time. say what you will about Ken Carter, he is a character you just can't stop watching. If he was alive today he would be at the top of the reality show stardom list. He has that pie in the sky "I will do this" attitude that is what made this World what it is today. The scale of what he attempts to do all by himself is staggering and on a level only a major corporation could undertake. Whatever he has to do to make this happen and all the problems that get in his way simply don't matter to him, undaunted he always proceeds.
Carter is on a quest to either make himself World famous as the World's greatest stuntman or die trying. He is a real modern day Gladiator minus the Evel Knievel angry arrogance. Although he reminds me of a Saturday Night Live, Dan Ackroyd character in a silly, comical sort of way this man works hard and actually possesses a heart and stones of Gold!
Behind the scenes the money to finally make the jump happen after 5 years of work was put up by the 1970s American television program "That's Incredible". When the producers get tired of spending money waiting for Carter to make the jump when it is convenient for himself, the producers con his "best friend" (with friends like this who needs enemies)Ken Powers to steal the jump out from under Ken Carter. God teaches all involved a valuably needed lesson but does not kill Powers so that the lesson has time to sink in. The crash footage on this film was also used in one of the "Faces of Death videos" even though Ken Powers is still alive as that is how powerful it is.
In the end the TV producers get what they wanted anyway, fantastic footage and a huge viewing audience on the TV program.
