Brandon Davis, Eric Flick and Jeremy Goeckner discuss the comedy classic, The Great Race!

Front Row Classics brings you something a little offbeat for the holiday season. Our editor-in-chief, Jeremy Goeckner, makes a return to Classics to discuss Blake Edwards' big budget salute to slapstick, The Great Race.  This episode covers topics that include Jack Lemmon's insanely zany dual role, the underrated talents of Tony Curtis, the professionalism & beauty of Natalie Wood and the most expensive pie fight ever put to film. We also give our thoughts on aspects of the film that might not hold up through the lens of 2020. So, hop in your turn-of-the century jalopy and follow the bouncing ball as Brandon, Eric and Jeremy bring you The Great Race!
