Overview

There's a few million dollars' worth of star power and a nickel's worth of plot in the lavish race-car melodrama Grand Prix. Among the participants in this annual cross-continent competition are characters played by James Garner, Yves Montand, Brian Bedford, and Antonio Sabato. Interested parties include Toshiro Mifune (his voice dubbed by Paul Frees), Adolfo Celi, and Claude Dauphin, while the women who agonize on the sidelines include Eva Marie Saint, Jessica Walter, and Françoise Hardy. The racing sequences are top-rank, cleverly utilizing those 1960s devices of helicopter angles and multiple screens. Oscars went to editor Frederic Steinkamp (among others) and the sound-effects supervisor Franklin E. Milton. Filmed on location, Grand Prix made back its cost about half a week into its run.

This movie was released in the 60's and when it was first released the theatre was packed. It had an Intermission,and a Recall to inform you when to return to the movie,that the Intermission was coming to an end. This movie just like Lemans put you in the Drivers Seat. If this came out in Blu-ray,the Effects Would bo ,"OUTSTANDING!" This Movie has Steve McQueen,and he did his own driving. As Must for Steve McQueen Fans.

No other "racing" film comes close to approaching Grand Prix, as the direction, cinematography, acting, and the story itself are head and shoulders above the rest. More so than any other movie, Grand Prix captures the intensity, glamour and tragedy of motorsports. I am certain that I am not alone in stating that this film was a major reason for my own dreams as a young boy to become a formula car racing driver, and though that effort ultimately failed, my life was made richer by having been so inspired. After you watch Grand Prix, if you don't understand why, I'll never be able to explain it. Having earned Enzo Ferrari's personal blessings, Grand Prix is simply epic!

Formula One World Cup racing at its best. Yes, its the 1960s, Lotus Fords, and so forth. But the filming is awesome, the cast terrific, and the mileu of international racing capured magnificently. Someone please get this classic on DVD!
