I admit bias here, loved it in 1965. Years later, there are 2 films here: a 30 minute hysterical intro and the 2 hour race itself. The intro intimidates the latter race section, which is necessarily longer. But Lemmon's Professor Fate is a classic villain and well worth the time. You cannot find a more colorful film EVER. If I have a negative, I would cut 10 minutes of it along the way here and there. This film is a warm visit with a good friend.
