IN a heartfelt tribute to the legendary international actor and singer star David Soul, a groundbreaking documentary titled "Cuban Soul" is in the works.

The film promises an intimate exploration of his life, music, and quest to find and restore his hero Ernest Hemingway's lost 1955 Chrysler New Yorker car.

With exclusive footage shot over ten years and never before seen interviews, "Cuban Soul" delves deep into the essence of David Soul, the beloved star of Starsky and Hutch and acclaimed 1970s pop star, and his passion for Cuba, it's people, and Hemingway.

The film will capture the essence of a true icon, with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews as David finds Hemingway's car and devotedly restores it, including all the highs and lows and jeopardy of the project.

Tragically, David died before the documentary could be completed and now producers are asking David's loyal fans worldwide to help complete David's last film and passion project .

The heart of "Cuban Soul" lies in its mission to uncover the untold story of his quest to find Ernest Hemingway's last lost car, a symbol of the enduring connection between two cultural icons.


However, the realisation of this ambitious project hinges on community support.

To bring "Cuban Soul" to fruition, a Go-Fund me page has been set up to raise the money needed to put together the documentary.

Executive Producer Peter Duncan says:"Our story is much more than a petrolhead restoration project.

"It's about David's passion for Cuba and its people, his love of the writing of Ernest Hemingway, and of course gives an insight into the man himself, David Soul.

"Exclusive, never-before-seen footage of David poignantly punctuates his undeterred determination to see this through. By finishing his film we will realise the dream for him.

"Your contributions will enable us to honour David Soul's legacy with the respect and reverence it deserves.

"In return for your generosity, backers will receive exclusive rewards, including early access to the film, behind-the-scenes updates, and the opportunity to be a part of history in the making.

"Together, let us celebrate the life and legacy of David Soul and ensure that his story continues to inspire and uplift audiences around the world.

"We are asking David's loyal fans worldwide to help us reach the target amount by donating the price of a glass of wine or a couple of coffees to raise what we need to complete this perfect and historical tribute to David Soul."

All of the filming and the interviews are already complete. All that is left is to complete filming the car restoration, post-production and editing. But that needs an extra cash injection.

Mini Bio:

David Soul achieved pop icon status as handsome, blond-haired, blue-eyed Detective Kenneth Hutchinson on the cult "buddy cop" TV series Starsky and Hutch (1975).
* Soul also had a very successful singing career recording several albums, with worldwide number one hit singles including "Silver Lady" & "Don't Give Up on Us Baby

Originally from Chicago, Illinois, David Soul is the son of a minister who was at one time serving as the religious affairs advisor to the U.S. High Commission in Berlin. At 24 years of age, young Soul joined a North Dakota musical revue, was noticed by a keen-eyed talent scout, and signed to a studio contract. He went on to study acting with the Irene Daly School of The Actors Company, and with the Columbia Workshop in Hollywood.
* He first appeared on TV in small roles in shows including
 I Dream of Jeannie (1965), Flipper (1964) and All in the Family (1971). Regular TV work kept coming in for Soul including making masked appearances on The Merv Griffin Show (1962), as the popular singer known only as "The Covered Man."

In 1973, Soul was fortunate enough to be cast as one of the corrupt motorcycle cops in the Clint Eastwood thriller Magnum Force (1973), where his talents came to the attention of several TV execs who were looking for someone to play one of the lead roles in the upcoming Starsky and Hutch (1975) TV series. After four seasons, the show came to an end, yet Soul's talents were still in demand. He quickly went on to appear as the meek writer turned terrified vampire hunter Ben Mears in the chilling television mini-series Salem's Lot (1979), and then as Jake in the interesting television movie Homeward Bound (1980).

Several undemanding movies and TV series appearances followed for Soul. * However in 1988 he scored rave reviews for his portrayal of real life, cold-blooded cop killer Michael Lee Platt in In the Line of Duty: The F.B.I. Murders (1988). It was considered highly controversial for its intense level of violence in a made for TV production.

David Soul remained very busy throughout the 1990s and beyond, in both film and on stage productions. He has toured internationally in several theater productions, including playing the narrator in the critically-acclaimed production of Willy Russell's Blood Brothers, plus a successful UK tour performing in Ira Levin's Deathtrap.
* Fans of the original TV series were glad to see Soul back with
 Paul Michael Glaser doing a cameo appearance in the big-budget movie version of Starsky & Hutch (2004).

Throughout his life, Soul has continually championed social causes often utilizing his own funds to raise awareness on issues including the impact of the Vietnam War, the shutdowns in the US steel industry, animal welfare, world hunger and HIV education.
* Soul has for several years made his home in the United Kingdom, where he has appeared at the Edinburgh Festival, on several British TV shows and has become a keen soccer fan supporting English club, Arsenal FC.
