In the opening sequence, during the French Grand Prix, car 42 is seen losing a wheel on a turn, followed by car 2A. There is an obvious jump in the editing where they combined the first shot of car 42 losing its wheel and the second shot of where it's been placed. See more »
I had mostly forgotten this movie after 30+ years, but my 2 year old received it as a gift, and is obsessed with it. It's fantastic, really. The locations are stunning, the musical numbers are (mostly) so lively, the physical humor is great! There is such a range of stuff in it, unlike current movies. I even like it for its flaws. It's really beautifully made. The thing I didn't remember, and that disappointed me at first, was that the whole story is a fantasy, a story within the story. I even like that the kids don't sing so well. They seem more real, less like little prodigies.
