Description
The movie with thei20,000-mile or one-million-laugh guarantee!

Crank your engines! With a roar, sputter and pop (and more Academy Award winning Best Sound Effects), drivers wheel westward in wacky turn-of-the-century autos for a New York-to-Paris race. Ahead lie 20,000 miles, a barroom brawl, a sinkable iceberg, 2,357 pies in the face and incalculable laughs.

Black Edwards turns a marvelous cast loose on a round-the-world highway booby-trapped by some of the funniest screen gags ever. Jack Lemmon and Peter Falk are nasty Professor Fate and his dim henchman Max. Tony Curtis is their good-guy nemesis, the Great Leslie. And Natalie Wood is cheroot-puffing suffragette reporter Maggie DuBois. Zestily scored by Henry Mancini and ravishing in a new digital transfer with revitalized digital audio from restored elements, The Great Race is great fun!

    I saw this film for the first time while on R & R in Vietnam. I fell in love with it and have watched it numerous times since then. I plan to share this with my family and, in particular, my grandchildren. This is a good wholesome film.

      A fun romp as two opposite teams try to be the first to drive from coast to coast. Tempers get heated and the pie flies as both teams have problems making their way on this historic trip. . . especially with a woman photographer trying to get the scoop on the angle for her newspaper.

                  I saw this movie when it first came out in the theaters, and love it as much now as I did then! Besides wanting this in my classic DVD library, I also bought it to introduce it to 3 of my grandnephews because it has all the qualities to introduce and show a new generation what movies should really be like - great, original stories, with good acting and blood, guns, car chases and explosions aren't necessary to entertain.

                    Comments about this product:

                    They just don't make movies like this anymore. An all-star cast, great comedy, wonderful music and the best food fight in movie history! A tried and true team, Curtis and Lemmon, Natalie Woods, and a equally terrific supporting cast. And I love the introduction at the beginning of the movie. I bought the DVD several years ago but now I may have to buy this one with all the new extras. A really good Valentine's Day gift (hint, hint) for that special someone. My mom took us to see this in the theater as kids and we laughed out loud. No toilet humor, no potty mouths, just good old-fashioned, clean fun. Today's screenplay writers could learn a thing or two (or three). You can talk about love and sex without being graphic. And you can be sexy without being naked. Love this movie!
