I liked this DVD. It is not to violent for children. There are no sex scenes. The story is strong and simple. The characters have depth. The plot does move slow. It is well acted. It is a movie about what it is like to be in the shoes of a race car driver. They are reckless and suicidal. If you like watching car races you will enjoy the 1966 races in this video.

During the 1960s, Formula 1 cars and circuits were dangerous. A few drivers died each racing season.

Released in 1966, "Grand Prix" captures the essence of Formula 1 racing: the noise, the excitement, the passion, the glamour and the danger. This film examines the willingness of the drivers of 1966 to sacrifice their lives for winning. For gearheads, I would rate "Grand Prix" at 5.0 stars.

Grand Prix is the real deal. Formula One cars, drivers, race track and the crowds that jam the streets to witness the race. Since it take place in France we here don't pay that much attention to it. At the time the movie was made though, it was really in it's hey day. James Garner and Eva Marie Saint who had done other movies together, reunite to make a great movie. See if you don't catch Formula One Racing Fever when you watch "Grand Prix".

This is a 1966 American car-racing drama with an international cast.
Toshiro Mifune (三船敏郎) has a supporting role as a race team owner, inspired by Soichiro Honda.
The film includes real-life racing footage and cameo appearances by drivers including Formula One World Champions Phil Hill, Graham Hill, Juan Manuel Fangio, Jim Clark, Jochen Rindt and Jack Brabham.
Extremely thrilling and breath-taking is its unique racing cinematography.
The accident scenes are so realistic and shocking that you might think those are real things.

Nice filming, although the split screens are sometimes over the top. As always with older movies, watch this when you have plenty of time.
