According to the biography PAUL NEWMAN: A LIFE by Shawn Levy, Universal Pictures paid Paul Newman $1.1 million for this film, at the time the highest salary "ever offered to an actor in a deal for a single film". See more »
I am a big fan of Paul Newman but this must be one of his lowest films, even though he is OK at it. I think this movie deserves 5.5 stars.
One of the biggest problems is that it last 120 minutes, it should have lasted 20 minutes less. I think the plot was good but not the way it was developed.
What I liked the most was the final scene between Paul and Joanne, this scene deserved to be in a much better movie. The race scenes are good.
Frank Capua is a car racer who gets married with Elora who has a 16 years old son who gets along with him, but there will be serious problems in the couple when he puts his career before her...........
I recommend watching it if it's on TV and you like old race cars movies or if you are a Paul Newman's die hard fan
