Academy Award winner Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, and Natalie Wood star in a slapstick farce about a 22,000-mile road race from New York to Paris set in 1908. Dastardly, black-garbed Dr. Fate (Lemmon) dares the world's greatest hero, The Great Leslie (Curtis), to the race across the Wild West, through frozen Alaska and into the Kingdom of Carpania. Fate sets a series of nefarious traps for Leslie, but neither plans on the indefatigable suffragette Maggie DuBois--the object of both Leslie's and Fate's affection--to enter the race, determined to strike a blow for feminism.

Perfect family movie is fun from beginning to end.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Great Race has some slapstick violence, and one character drinks too much. The reporter played by Natalie Wood is something of a caricature of feminism, more committed to shocking people than to any thoughtful concept of equality. But she has an unquenchable spirit, and she's courageous and resilient.
