Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Professional daredevil and white-suited hero, The Great Leslie, convinces turn-of-the-century auto makers that a race from New York to Paris (westward across America, the Bering Straight and Russia) will help to promote automobile sales. Leslie’s arch-rival, the mustached and black-attired Professor Fate vows to beat Leslie to the finish line in a car of Fate’s own invention. The Blake Edwards style of slapstick and song originated with this movie. A dedication to Laurel and Hardy appears at the beginning of the film. Edwards’ tribute to Stan and Ollie can be seen most clearly in the interaction between Professor Fate and his cohort Max, as well as in the operatic Pottsdorf pie fight.

The Greatest Epic Comedy
Although “It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” was the first comedy to get the epic film treatment, “The Great Race” is in my opinion the best epic comedy. It’s just a much funnier film with so many laughs in its first half that the more serious part dealing with the palace intrigues and the straight sword fight acts more as a breather for the viewer before it revs up again with the funniest pie fight of all time and the smashing (literally) finale. Jack Lemmon shows why he was probably the most versatile comic actor of the 50-60s next to Peter Sellers (this is a long ways from the Lemmon of “The Apartment” or “Irma La Douce”!). Peter Falk, a decade before “Columbo” is hysterical too, while Natalie Wood never looked more sexy (except for the last part of “Gypsy”) than she does here.

They don’t make this kind of simple comedy devoid of crudity any longer. That’s what makes a film like “The Great Race” something to keep coming back to and enjoying again and again.

The Great Waste
A box office success in it’s day, The Great Race is brassy and long-winded, nearly 2 hours and 40 minutes long, but ultimately trite and scarce on laughs. The film drags because the race lacks excitement and is side-tracked by, among other things, the longest pie fight in cinema history, a barroom brawl and musical numbers. The other contestants in the race are lost track of and the focus is on characters who are shrill, one-note and annoying. You don’t care who wins. The only thing you’ll root for is for the race to finish. Natalie Wood is lovely though embarrassing as she and Tony Curtis shout at each other while Lemon plays a one-note, dastardly villain as written. Some of the nostalgic trimmings are nice, but I prefer It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World(63)which also featured Dorothy Provine because at least it had momentum. Blake Edwards directed without the charm or inventiveness he displayed in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Victor/Victoria. A live-action cartoon, The Great Race can’t sustain its length. The 3 leads have demonstrated comic ability elsewhere: Lemon and Curtis in Some Like It Hot(59) and Natalie Wood in Bob&Carol&Ted&Alice(69).
