Take a girl who was born in Nice (France), grew up in Lebanon and then landed in Los Angeles in the late eighties, bringing with her strong determination mixed up with clever and innovative ideas. Just shake all these things up and...Boom...You’ll have the explosive Faith Granger!

She’s a visionary, a writer and a producer...She dreamed of a quality period film about hotrodding... And now here it is: Deuce of spades.

The idea was born from the strong passion Faith has for the old school hotrodding world. In 2006 she stepped into this world buying a cool ’32 roadster and joining a lot of “good ol’ style meeting” with it (especially in the So-Cal area). She then made an interesting documentary called “Last of the hiboy girl” projected during the Grand National Roadster Show...And after this first success she decided to tackle a much more huge project, starting to write the screenplay for a “real’n’greased” movie, an independent movie completely dedicated to the retro-nostalgic hot rod culture.

From the beginning Faith immediately aimed to do things the right way, making the film herself with the help of her friends, who were ready to give a hand to this astonishing project with their cars, locations, know-how and so on.

In this way Faith and friends are doing a very good job filming each weekend, with whatever weather conditions (cold, hot, rain, they’re always out there filming hard!) in order to finish the masterpiece called DEUCE OF SPADES!

And now it sounds like they have finished the movie... Which will be available to purchase on DVD soon...Very good job! Go Go Go Faith!


When a hotrod girl finds a mysterious letter dating back to the fifties hidden in her roadster, she is left with nothing but questions. She sets out to find the answers and retrace her deuce’s troubled past.

But will learning the truth make a difference and can a broken man ever get a second chance at a happiness long forgotten?

With over 90 minutes of flashbacks showing the 50's era, the film aims at bringing the old jalopies back into the spotlight, resurrecting the "good old days" of hotrodding and bringing a slice of Americana back to life. It is Faith’s tribute to all the hotrodders who were a part of it.  You can’t wait to watch it ?! We Too!!!
