Description by OLDIES.com:
Blake 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!
- Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis also teamed up in Billy Wilder's SOME LIKE IT HOT, the funniest American film ever made according to the American Film Institute's list.
- The film is dedicated to Laurel and Hardy.
- The pie fight is the biggest ever filmed, utilizing 2,357 pies.
