Behind the Scenes with Blake Edwards' 'The Great Race'

15 min

- I never saw a car like that in my life.

- You never will again either.

Give me the bomb.

Professor, be careful.

After you activate the mechanism,

you only got ten seconds.

I know that. Give me the cord.

We have taken the liberty of naming it

after the man who inspired its creation.

- The Leslie Special.

- I'm deeply honored.

What took you so long?

I had to go to the Rolls-Royce agency.

I had to steal a spare magneto.

It's ready.

Yes, it's ready.

There has never been anything like this.

- Professor, your greatest creation.

- The work of genius.

The finest parts from the greatest

automobiles in the world.

The Hannibal Twin 8.

When the blizzards and snow storms come,

we will continue on just as planned.

Push the button, Max.

When the rains come,

and when the snow melts...

...we shall continue to rise above it.

Push the button, Max!

Nature will chase us, we will beat her.

And brigands, thieves, cutthroats

of all nations may hound us.

But we are ready for them.

We will blast them to kingdom come!

We can melt, we can blast.

We can rise above! We are invincible!

Take us down.

Push the button, Max.


- Mr. Goodbody.

- What is it, Frisbee?

- You have to come.

- What's the matter?

Well, it's a young lady, sir.

- What about the young lady?

- She's handcuffed herself to the door.

- Handcuffed herself to the door?

- Of the men's room.



Return to your assignments.

This is a newspaper office.

There will be no lollygagging

in this hallway.

There will be no lollygagging

in this hallway.

Now, young lady, who are you?

I am a female past the age of consent.

I'm the first woman to edit

the newspaper at my college.

I'll remain handcuffed until I'm the first

female reporter of The New York Sentinel.
