The Fast and the Furious (1955)

An early Roger Corman production co-directed by star John Ireland, this hot rod movie is the original that spawned the later billion dollar franchise. Boasting a lot of road speed scenes followed by race track footage, co-star Dorothy Malone is the whole show. For cinephiles, there is a terrific cameo by Iris Adrian who would do a similar job ten years later for Disney in That Darn Cat!
