Pushing the Limit: The Making of Grand Prix : is an absolutely fascinating documentary which features interviews with Garner, Saint and others alongside a wealth of vintage footage. The shoot was evidently tempestuous, as evidenced by Frankenheimer’s quote “I don’t know how the hell we ever did that film” which starts the featurette out, and those roiling emotions are well on display in a couple of the clips here. This is well above average stuff and any fan of the film should spend time watching this featurette.

The Style and Sound of Speed : Saul Bass is usually thought of only as an iconic title designer for a slew of Hitchcock and James Bond films, but he actually served as a visual consultant for several iconic films including Hitchcock’s Psycho (Bass helped plan the shower sequence) and Kubrick’s Spartacus. Bass also contributed on several levels to Grand Prix, helping to do the pioneering split screen technique as well as some of the sound design elements and other special effects. This excellent overview helps to highlight his contributions to the film.
