Great movie finally on DVD

on 11/7/2006

Great shots of classic racing in the 1960's. The DVD also has some nice features on the making of the film & some insight into Frankenheimer.

THE racing movie

on 7/7/2011

A finer film on Formula 1 and the sport and art of racing you will never find. Filmed during an actual F1 season and using state-of-the art on-board cameras, Frankenheimer captures the true beauty and violence that is F1. This film could not be made today. The F1 drivers of the 1960s raced because they loved it. It was a passion. Many of today's F1 drivers are nothing more than spoiled brats. Although Steve McQueen was Frankenheimer's first choice to star in this film, James Garner does a superb job portraying the lone American driver Pete Aaron. No stunt double for Garner, thank you very much. Although some of the supporting characters and subplots are thin and uninspired, the film's racing footage is second-to-none.

Review As the showpiece film for Formula One, Grand Prix has become a cult favorite in the racing community. In online forums people gripe about it not being available on DVD, salivate at the historical racetracks that no longer exist, and marvel at the racing footage that anticipated today's in-car television coverage. Yet despite its niche position in the market, the film is actually very accessible, enlightening even to someone whose only contact with racing comes from random snippets found on television while channel-surfing.
