Annoying!
16 August 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Grand Prix" is a very good film. However, it's 'making of' featurette from 1966 is NOT. Most of the problem is the narration--it is just bad. The first problem I noticed is that the guy keeps using two different pronunciations for the word 'Monaco' and does this interchangeably. It seems unprofessional. But far worse is the use of LOTS of ridiculous hyperbole to describe the film! The Second Coming couldn't be more hyped than the way this guy talks about the movie--and no movie is THAT good! The copy the narrator had to read must have embarrassed him--it was that bad. Combining it with obnoxious music and you've got a film that doesn't encourage the viewer to see the movie but to avoid it! If you are a glutton for punishment, it's included on the second disc for the feature "Grand Prix".
