Goofs

During the Sebring race, the two drivers fighting for the lead are Greg Rafferty, driving a birdcage Maserati; and Carlo Zaraga, driving a production Corvette - a much slower car that wouldn't have been competitive with the birdcage Maserati in a real race. See more »

An entertaining film for auto racing fans
1 June 2002 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

THE GREEN HELMET is an entertaining film for auto racing devotees, but might not be of more than passing interest to anyone else. I viewed the film when it was released in the United States in 1961, and found it engrossing. Unfortunately, it is rarely shown on television and is not available (as far as I know) on video media. I have not seen it since its original theatrical run. The story involves the testing of newly designed racing tires, and includes the obligatory romantic subplot between the driver hired to do the testing and the daughter of the tire manufacturer. The most notable feature of the film is the pioneering use of cameras mounted on the front of the test vehicle, that give an unobstructed view of what a racing driver actually sees and hears when operating a racing car at extremely high speeds. This photographic technique was used to great effect in the much more famous film GRAND PRIX, released five years later. This feature makes the film a must-see (if one can find it) for anyone interested in the sport of auto racing.
