The Great Race

Trivia: The Leslie Special was built up from several motorcars, but is mainly based on a 1907 Thomas Flyer.

Trivia: The name 'DuBois', the character played by Natalie Wood, actually means 'Wood' in French.

Continuity mistake: When the Leslie Special is rolled out to be presented to the Great Leslie the red carpet in the front view starts at the building alignment. The aerial shot as seen from Professor Fate shows a wide gap between the building alignment and the red carpet.
