Grand Prix (21-Dec-1966)

Director: John Frankenheimer

Writer: Robert Alan Aurthur

Music Composed and Conducted by: Maurice Jarre

Producer: Edward Lewis

Keywords: Drama, Auto Racing

A crash between two teammates leaves one injured, and the other begins a relationship with his recovering colleague's estranged wife. But the plot is irrelevant. With its groundbreaking cinematography (filmed in Cinerama), the gold standard of auto racing films. It shows us a far more dangerous sport than Formula-1 has since become. Won Oscars for Best Sound, Best Sound Effects, and Best Editing.
