Encyclopedia > Grand Prix (movie)

Grand Prix is a action film released in 1966. It was directed by John Frankenheimer. It starred Yves Montand, James Garner, Eva Marie Saint, Brian Bedford and Antonio Sabato.

The film follows the fate of four Formula One drivers through one Gran Prix season:

  • Jean-Pierre Sarti (played by Montand) - a Frenchman, last year's world champion who runs into some bad luck
  • Pete Aron (played by Garner) - an American, who is on the come-back trail
  • Scott Stoddard (played by Bedford) - an Englishman, recuperating from an almost fatal crash
  • Nino Barlini (played by Sabato) - an Italian, a promising rookie

Sub-plots revolve around the woman who try to live with these men with such dangerous life-styles. Toshiro Mifune has a supporting role as a race team owner. As expected with Frankenheimer, terrific racing cinematrography is the main draw of the film.

James Garner: Grand Prix - Movie (1223 words)
She played Kitty, the American visitor to Israel, and sometimes in GRAND PRIX she seems to be channeling all of "Kitty's" mannerisms, for both parts allow the US viewer to somehow enter, through her eyes, a complicated and complex European social system we might otherwise fail to register with.
GRAND PRIX also includes the amazing photography of Lionel Linden, a wonderful musical score by Maurice Jarre, and brilliant editing by a team lead by Henry Berman.
Like, a previous viewer - I was privileged to see GRAND PRIX several times during its initial release (in my case at the Cinerama dome in Hollywood) where the 70 mm Cinerama print, the projection, the sound, and the screen allowed the optimal presentation of the film.
Grand Prix On DVD (367 words)
If I remember correctly the movie opens at the Monaco Grand Prix and you had the illusion that you were in the car.
I've only ever seen bits and pieces of this movie when it's been on TV, since it came out before I was born, and I ALWAYS miss the beginning - I'm 37 now, and STILL haven't seen the whole movie, but watch as much as I can whenever it's playing on cable.
Grand Prix was the first time I had actually seen what it was all about.
