Great Race, The (DVD)
From comedy master Blake Edwards comes this classic, riotous all-star farce. It is the turn of the previous century, and American automakers are worried about how to sell their new product to an uneducated public. Professional daredevil and all-around good guy, The Great Leslie, convinces the automakers that a race from New York to Paris (westward across America, the Bering Straight and Russia) will help to promote automobile sales. However, Leslie's arch-rival, the evil Professor Fate, vows to beat Leslie to the finish line in a car of his own invention. Gags, mishaps and laughs abound! Starring acting legends including Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Tony Curtis as The Great Leslie, Academy Award-winner Jack Lemmon as the evil Professor Fate, Golden Globe-winner Natalie Wood, Emmy Award-winner Peter Falk and dozens more, all scored to the music of four-time Academy Award-winning composer Henry Mancini.]]>

Loved it as a child, still love it as an adult. They don't make family movies like this anymore. Nowadays they're all potty humor and fart jokes.Published 25 days ago by Red Ranger

|Why do all the cars have the steering wheel on the right side?||
Well, this is a late answer to an old post, but that's where the steering wheels were on American cars of the time (even though we were driving on the right side of the road, I believe) - maybe it was convenient for the driver to be on the curb side. Do a Google image search for the 1907 Thomas... Read More

|We need a better version of this product.||
More than a special edition DVD a Blu-Ray is needed.

|When is the Blu Ray edition coming out?||
Plus they should hold a seance and get the Blake Edwards/Jack Lemmon/Tony Curtis/Natalie Wood/Peter Falk commentary track. Too soon, too late. Larry Storch?
