On any Sunday...

... is a 1971 American documentary feature about motorcycle sport, directed by Bruce Brown.This documentary follows the lives of motorcycle racers and racing enthusiasts. Brown tried to show the unique talents needed for the different forms of racing. For instance, the motocross riders were typically free-spirited types, while desert racers were, as Brown says "the great variety of people from all walks of life" and "good people". In Grand National racing, Brown showed the differing personalities, such as the business-like approach to racing displayed by Mert Lawwill versus the carefree approach that wild young rookie David Aldana became known for. 
Steve Mc Queen is featured in the film, along with Mert Lawwill, malcolm Smith and many other motorcycle racers from the late 1960s and early 1970s.
