The Goods: A Film Podcast

The Great Race (1965) - It’s a pie, pie, pie, pie fight

July 13, 2022

Brian shares with Dan an epic-scale comedy from the mid-60's, a classic "roadshow" style film complete with intermission and pie fight. Join as they parse Jack Lemmon's all-in performance as the Professor Fate, the dated politics, and other memorable examples of the large-scale racing-themed movies. Dan recasts the movie in 2022, and Brian shares the film's prodigious personal influence on him.
