How long was it??? Did they include commercials or the ten minute intermission???

I taped this from cable years ago; finally got around to burning it to...*two* DVDs...It was over three hours...   :shock:  (I didn't want to over-compress it and lose anything)...  :D

The IMDB says it was 2 hrs 59 minutes, but I don't think they counted the intermission...

Lousy acting (from the people), but great shots...

If you can find it, another classic is "The Racers", with Kirk Douglas...The 1955 GP season, plus sports cars and even a Mille Miglia-type road race...

It is good to see that the old cars get to be captured on film for us...
