    Toby and Todd, I really enjoyed this one. They don’t make them like THE GREAT RACE(filmed 1964-65, released 1965) anymore, I first viewed this movie on its network television premiere in 1970. Part I on the CBS THURSDAY NIGHT MOVIE and Part II on the CBS FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE.

    THE GREAT RACE in my opinion is a Comedy Classic, hands down. It’s lavishly mounted to the inth degree and zany as all get out. What a cast and I just can’t think about anyone else in the leading roles, or the supporting roles for that matter. This hilarious farce is a slapstick-backslapping homage to Hollywood’s past, that we so revere as true movie fans. I got a kick out of your neat Hannibal 8 story. I could talk about this movie all day.

    I haven’t viewed THE GREAT RACE in a while and I think it is about time for me to revisit this gem.

    I look forward to your next THE CARBON ARC PODCAST.
