From comedy master Blake Edwards (The Pink Panther, Victor Victoria) comes the classic, riotous all-star farce The Great Race. 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 Strait 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 Tony Curtis as The Great Leslie, Academy Award winner Jack Lemmon as the evil Professor Fate, Natalie Wood, Peter Falk and dozens more, all scored to the music of four-time Academy Award-winning composer Henry Mancini.
