Movie Review by ManMachine
April 15th, 2018

Vroom! Vroom!

Favorite Movie Quote: "There's only winning."

I, for one, would certainly like to know what director, John Frankenheimer's justification was for this film's gruelling 3-hour running time. It made absolutely no sense to me why this film needed to be so long. No sense, at all.

I found that the more background and more personal dramas that were revealed to me about the story's characters only served to make me like them even less.

Filmed at various world locations (such as - England, France, Monaco, and the USA) - This $9 million "Gals, Guts & Glory" picture was one of the highest grossing films of 1966.

Yes. There was a lot of really exciting, "hard-driving" action in "Grand Prix" (Indeed) - But - IMO - Had this film been edited down to a reasonable 2-hour running time - I probably would have enjoyed it a whole lot more than I inevitably did.
