When her deal to ride with a driver falls through, she hires ex-stuntman Eddie Miles, who is racing against his former employer, the ruthless Count Borgia, who becomes their hardest and meanest competitor in the rally.

Trivia

Christopher Lee's last line in the movie, "La commedia e finita," is the last line of Leoncavallo's tragic opera "I Pagliacci." It means "the comedy is over." See more »

Goofs

Pretty much any time Christopher Lee is driving in the car with his sidekick, the camera is visible in the reflection on the sidekicks helmet. This starts at the beginning of the race and continues throughout the movie. See more »

Quotes

Feodor: [sings] Baboons on the road, what kind of sign is this? Baboons on the road, is this the end of bliss? I would rather see a rain of toads than hear that call: baboons on the road! I would rather see a rain of toads than hear that call, baboons on the road!
Count Borgia: Feodor, you know that I am fluent in twelve languages. Amongst all those noble and ancient tongues, there is but one solitary word that describes you with complete and total accuracy: putz.

No Deathrace or Cannonball
7 January 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Yes, Carradine's at the wheel again. This time the race is through Africa which makes you fully appreciate the scenery. Journalist Channing, from the Gazette, the romantic lead here, comes along for the hairy ride. The wonderful Christopher Lee plays the villain, Count Borgia, a riding legend, who dresses the part, dead set determined at winning the race that hardly seems feasible with his nincompoop assistant. Channing provides the humorous touches, and when she gets scared, even if it is overacting, it makes her funny and enjoyable, especially when she notices a pack of lions behind an oblivious Carradine. But all in all, this one falls below par to Carradine's other race movies. Channing has a terrible habit of losing her cameras or trading them. For Carradine fans of this fare mainly, or even the kids too.
