This is one of those spectacular comedy star vehicles which is perfectly watchable on a wet Sunday afternoon but which, looked at from almost any other perspective, is just a waste of celluloid. Full Review

It's highly inventive, self-conscious camp, made in 1965, well before the genre wore itself out in superciliousness. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Goofy and overblown, but still hard to resist.

Lemmon plays it dirty throughout and for huge effect. Curtis underplays for equally comic effect. Wood comes through on a par with the two male stars. Full Review

Description by

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 (westwardacross 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.
