Overview

"Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis are bitter rivals in director Blake Edwards' hilarious road comedy The Great Race. Warner's work on this 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer is stunning. With rich textures and dark black levels, this transfer appears to be a stunningly great reproduction of the original print. While a few slight instances of dirt and edge enhancement abound, overall this is a very pleasing image that will surely please fans. The soundtrack is presented in a newly remixed Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround mix in English. While the film's age means a lack of directional effects, overall this new soundtrack is a very welcome addition to the disc. No excessive distortion or hiss is heard in any of the dialogue, music, or effects. Also included on this disc is a French Dolby Mono soundtrack, as well as Spanish, English, French, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Thai, and Portuguese subtitles. The extra features on The Great Race are small but entertaining -- included on this disc is a very funny and strange ""behind-the-scenes"" documentary from the 1960s (which features a hearty voice-over actor commenting on what's going on), some cast and crew highlights, and an anamorphic widescreen theatrical trailer for the film."
