    If you can get passed the predictable melodrama the editing, cinematography, direction, and Saul Bass montage designs will more than see you through the lengthy running time.

    Grand Prix is considered one of the greatest films made about professional auto racing, mainly due to it's numerous camera angles, a variety of different and thoroughly captivating split screens as well as some of the most intense and engaging driving (A lot of it actually recorded at real Formula One races) sequences recorded on film. There is a lot to like here in the racing elements and a majority of the film is the races, however a downside is the bland and mindless romantic stories tied inbetween them. The only interesting element is the dilema of risk-taking and what you have to give to compete in such dangerous professions, the men involved all make many sacrifices as well as their loved ones. The cast all does a good job and Toshiro Mifune as well as many others make up the great supporting cast as well. For the driving sequences captured alone, the film is worth a watch.

    As the showpiece film for Formula One, Grand Prix is a cult favorite in the racing community. The racing sequences are tremendously exciting, shot from inside, in the air, along the track, in a chase car, pretty much everywhere that a camera can go. The fact that most of it was shot at high speed in real life, much of it at actual Formula One races, gives it a very authentic look. The personal stories, which seem to drag quite a bit, are filler in between races, but it's Frankenheimer's direction that puts you right behind the wheel. <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=grandprix.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/grandprix.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
