The Great Race

The Great Race

Academy Award winner Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis and Natalie Wood star in a slapstick farce about a 22,000-mile road race from New York to Paris set in 1908. Dastardly, black-garbed Dr. Fate (Lemmon) dares the world's greatest hero, The Great Leslie (Curtis), to the race across the Wild West, through frozen Alaska and into the Kingdom of Carpania. Fate sets a series of nefarious traps for Leslie, but neither plans on the indefatigable suffragette Maggie DuBois--the object of both Leslie's and Fate's affection--to enter the race, determined to strike a blow for feminism.
