The stars of this movie are the beautiful cinematography of the Italian towns and vistas and the great stock footage of the vintage Euro racing cars. The story itself is pretty far-fetched. James Robertson Justice owns a British racing team that he wants badly to displace the Italians as champions. So he dispatches Stanley Baker to Italy to hire the key designer away from the competitive team. Instead, Baker blows up the Italian plant and kills several inept policemen during his theft of the race car blueprints. Making this all the more unbelievable is that Justice knew Baker was a crook when he hired him! There's a lot of silly womanizing and drinking on the part of the drivers that must be sifted through not to mention the love story between Steel and Versois. While the ending is somewhat exciting, this one is really mainly for racing enthusiasts.
