The Great Race - Enola HolmesNie zuvor hat ein Fremder am Rennen teilgenommen. And in the middle of the great race. The vehicles of the characters can be placed in the grandstand to watch the great race. Es ist sicher Blake Edwards zu verdanken, dass davon im fertigen Film nichts zu merken ist.
Fate, the saloon brawl in Borracho, the Prisoner of Zenda send-up, and the pie fight. Hollywood doesn't make great slapstick farces like this anymore.
Humor now revolves around groin injuries and stupid one-liners and catch phrases. We don't see great character pieces anymore.
It's a shame as these kinds of movies hold up well; especially as family fare. The DVD is pretty bare-bones. It would have been nice to have some commentary from Blake Edwards and Tony Curtis.
Warner Brothers has but out some pretty substandard DVD packages, this one included. Still, it's worth the price just to watch the movie.

Edit Cast Cast overview, first billed only: Jack Lemmon The Great Leslie Natalie Wood Maggie Dubois Peter Falk Maximilian Meen Keenan Wynn Hezekiah Sturdy Arthur O'Connell Henry Goodbody Vivian Vance Hester Goodbody Dorothy Provine Lily Olay Larry Storch Texas Jack Ross Martin General Kuhster Marvin Kaplan Frisbee Hal Smith Mayor of Boracho Denver Pyle Fate arrives first at a refueling point, the small Western frontier town of Borracho.
A local outlaw named "Texas Jack" becomes jealous of the attraction to Leslie shown by showgirl Lily Olay and a saloon brawl ensues.
Fate sneaks outside amidst the chaos, steals the fuel he needs, and destroys the rest. Leslie uses mules to pull his car to another refueling point, where Maggie tricks Hezekiah into boarding a train and handcuffs him to a seat, lying to Leslie that Hezekiah had quit and "wanted to go back to New York".
The two remaining cars reach the Bering Strait and park side by side in a blinding snowstorm. Keeping warm during the storm, Leslie and Maggie begin to see each other as more than competitors.
Mishaps, including a polar bear in Fate's car, compel all four racers to warm themselves in Leslie's car. They awaken on a small ice floe which drifts into their intended Russian port, where Hezekiah is waiting for Leslie, who in turn casts off Maggie for deceiving him.
Maggie is snatched by Fate, who drives off in the lead. After driving across Asia, both cars enter the tiny kingdom of Carpania, whose alcoholic and foppish Crown Prince Friedrich Hapnick is the spitting image of Professor Fate.
Max escapes and joins Leslie to rescue the others. Fate is forced to masquerade as the Prince during the coronation so that the rebels can gain control of the kingdom.
Following a climactic sword fight with Leslie, Von Stuppe attempts escape by leaping to a waiting boat, but bursts the hull and sinks it.
Leslie and Max return the real Prince to the capital in time to defeat Kuhster's plan for a military coup. Fate, still masquerading as Prince Hapnick, takes refuge in a bakery but falls into a huge cake.
A pie fight ensues involving the racers, the Prince's men and the conspirators. The five racers, covered in pie filling, depart Carpania with King Friedrich's best wishes.
As the racers leave Pottsdorf with Maggie now back in Leslie's car , it becomes a straight road race to Paris. Nearing Paris, Leslie and Maggie have a spirited argument regarding the roles of men, women and sex in relationships.
Leslie stops his car just short of the finish line under the Eiffel Tower to prove that he loves Maggie more than he cares about winning the race.
Fate drives past to claim the winner's mantle, but becomes indignant that Leslie let him win. Fate demands a rematch: a race back to New York.
The return race commences, with newlyweds Leslie and Maggie now a team. Fate lets them start first, then attempts to destroy their car with a small cannon.
The shot misses the Leslie Special, instead knocking down the Eiffel Tower. On February 12, , the "Greatest Auto Race" began with six entrants, starting in New York City and racing westward across three continents.
The destination was Paris, making it the first around-the-world automobile race. Only the approximate race route and the general time period were borrowed by Edwards in his effort to make "the funniest comedy ever".
Edwards, a studious admirer of silent film , dedicated the film to film comedians Laurel and Hardy. The unintended consequences of Professor Fate's order, "Push the button, Max!
Edwards poked fun at later films and literature as well. The saloon brawl scene was a parody of the western film genre, and a plot detour launched during the final third of the film was a direct parody of the novel, The Prisoner of Zenda , and of the film version of the story , wherein a traveler is a lookalike for the king and stands in for him.
Mirisch Productions initially financed the film for United Artists. The film's escalating costs led UA to drop the film, but the project was picked up by Warners.
Edwards wanted Robert Wagner to play the leading man, but studio executive Jack L. Warner insisted on Tony Curtis, possibly because of Wood's recent divorce from Wagner.
Burt Lancaster was announced at one stage. Wood was unhappy with her career and her personal life, having been divorced from Robert Wagner in April Warner asked Curtis if he would give a percentage of his film royalties to Wood as an enticement, but Curtis refused.
He said "I couldn't give her anything to make her want to do the movie. Shooting began on June 15, Edwards, sometimes with Wood in tow, repeatedly visited Warner in his office to ask for more money.
Warner approved nearly all of the requests. When it was released, it was the most expensive comedy ever filmed.
Shooting ended in November During the five months of filming, Wood's unhappiness was not visible to the cast and crew, and her characterization of Maggie DuBois was playful.
Her sister Lana Wood thought that Wood looked the prettiest she ever had, but Lana sensed that the film "was physically taxing" for Wood.
Groggy from the drugs, she called her friend Mart Crowley who took her to the hospital for emergency treatment.
Music for the film was by Henry Mancini , and the costumes were designed by Edith Head. Unique slideshow-style title design was by Ken Mundie.
Another of the four appears painted dark green in the Warner Brothers film The Ballad of Cable Hogue —the grille can be seen bearing the words "Leslie Special", with the wheels and tires remaining their original white color.
This vehicle shows up during the last 30 minutes of the movie carrying a lead character, and has a pivotal role at the end of the movie.
The villain's black car was named the "Hannibal Twin-8"; five were constructed. One is on display at the Petersen Automobile Museum, powered by a Volkswagen industrial engine.
This model includes a prop "cannon" and a working smoke generator. All four rear wheels are powered by a chain drive.
Both vehicles were first on display at Movie World's "Cars of the Stars" museum in Buena Park, California until the museum closed in the late s. The Technicolor scene for the pie fight in the royal bakery was filmed over five days.
Following this was the throwing of 4, pies,  the most pies ever filmed in a pie fight. Colorful cream pies with fillings such as raspberry, strawberry, blueberry and lemon were used.
Edwards told the cast that a pie fight by itself is not funny, so to make it funny they would build tension by having the hero, dressed all in white, fail to get hit with any pies.
He said "The audience will start yearning for him to get it". Shooting was halted while the actors took the weekend off.
Over the weekend, the pie residue spoiled all over the scenery. When the actors returned Monday morning, the set stunk so badly that the building required a thorough cleaning and large fans to blow out the sour air.
The missing pie residue was recreated carefully with more pies, and shooting resumed. At first, the actors had fun with the pie fight assignment, but eventually the process grew wearisome and dangerous.
Wood choked briefly on pie filling which hit her open mouth. Lemmon reported that he got knocked out a few times; he said "a pie hitting you in the face feels like a ton of cement".
The pie fight scene paid homage to the early Mack Sennett practice of using a single thrown pie as comedic punctuation, but to a greater degree, it was a celebration of classic movie pie fights such as Behind the Screen with Charlie Chaplin ; The Battle of the Century starring Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy ; and In the Sweet Pie and Pie with the Three Stooges.
Though Edwards used 4, pies over five days, many of these were used as set dressing for continuity.
