Screened in a 35mm print, this epic 1965 comedy from director Blake Edwards is shown in anticipation of the 2016 Great Race, the celebrated vintage car rally starting in San Rafael on June 18 and ending in Moline, Illinois on June 26.
A big-budget homage to slapstick comedy, the movie stars Tony Curtis as The Great Leslie (hero) and Jack Lemmon as Professor Fate (villain), competing daredevils who enter the 1908 New York-to-Paris car race, followed by Natalie Wood as Maggie, photojournalist and suffragette. Costars include Peter Falk, Keenan Wynn and Dorothy Provine, and Henry Mancini contributed the music. (US 1965) 160 min.
It’s anticipated that the film’s two top cars- the Leslie Special and the Hannibal 8- will be on display outside the Rafael.
