About a year ago, I remember saying in a forum (probably an auto racing one) that I hoped MGM would get a special Edition of Grand Prix out as Frankenheimer was getting old. Earlier this year I learned that it was Warner who had the rights to the film, and my hopes of a timely release sank. Now I read today's news, and I see a chance at preserving film history lost. Grand Prix may not have been a great film story-wise, but nobody could argue that it has some of the best racing scenes ever filmed (enhanced by its Cinerama presentation). Frankenheimer was one of the best directors at doing commentaries. He always had something to say and covers every aspect of making the movie. He also was one of a few directors that could talk technical and not bore you to tears. I'm sure there's a few interviews with him talking about the film out there, but you know they won't have the detail you can get with him talking for the whole 179 minutes. We're gonna miss you John.
