In the early 20th century, two rivals, the heroic Leslie and the despicable Professor Fate, engage in an epic automobile race from New York to Paris.
When Professor Fate and Max are being chased by the train, the car was attached to the front of the locomotive by a short bar. The track was also prepared so as to protect the car's tires.
Just before Maggie Dubois sings "The Sweetheart Tree," Hezekiah is playing the guitar left handed. After he puts it down, Maggie picks it up and immediately begins playing right handed without re-stringing it.
Jack Lemmon is only credited as Professor Fate and not for his second role as Crown Prince Hapnik.
The Great Race was licensed for showing in the Soviet Union in 1965. However, the whole episode where the race is going through Russia was cut. The Soviet authorities took it as a mockery of the 1908 Russian people.
