In 1924 the Wacky Races weren't cartoons!
9 April 2000 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a brilliant slapstick comedy, the climax of which is one of the greatest car race sequences ever filmed. Part of the wonder of this film is how on earth they did the stunts with those fragile old jalopies. Equally baffling is how they managed to film those stunts - some of the camerawork is astounding. From the opening sequence, when a bed is racing down the street, to the literally explosive finale, this film does not let up in action or laughs. Do not miss this one, it is a classic!
