This movie was made in 1955. Kirk Douglas is the star, along with many known actors, of that era.  It features both Sports Car racing and Grand Prix, and was filmed at many of the old circuits, including the Mille Miglia..

Just watching it now. All I have is a terrible VHS copy taped ages ago off the Speed Channel when they used to show racing movies hosted by Bruce Dern. This seems a little faded but otherwise a pretty good version.

I love movie trivia and when watching old movies I sometimes look up the lesser known actors on Wikipedia to see what else they have done. I looked up George Dolenz, the actor who plays Bella Darvi's rich friend. He was born in Trieste of Slovene descent and had quite a respectable career in films and on TV. But most interestingly, it turns out he is the father of Mickey Dolenz of The Monkees.
