Not a very good documentary of the making of the film "Grand Prix."
This short subject about the behind-the-scenes activities involved in making the dynamic CINERAMA feature film, isn't all that it's cracked up to be. That said, "The Making of Grand Prix" is a look at the logistics of John Frankenheimer's 1966 classic film, which starred James Garner, Yves Montand and Eva Marie Saint. But, only the portion filmed on location in Monaco. This short gives a viewer a look at the complexities of filming in the midst of one of racing's biggest competitions. "Grand Prix" was filmed on many different race courses in Europe, when American driver Phil Hill was at the top of his game internationally. This short only looks at the Monte Carlo race. It's interesting to see how they worked out the logistics for the race, but it only covers this one race and in faded color stock to boot! The rest of the short has nothing to do with the film "Grand Prix", and will not enlighten you one bit (unless you just happen to go nuts over compilations of old footage of various auto events having no connection to the film "Grand Prix," and with no meaningful commentary either).
