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 OLDIES.com:

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.
