Frankenheimer was very thorough; where the cars used in takes were his Lotus 33s, BRM P261 and McLaren M3 he kept their sound, but the Formula Junior 'kiddy cars' were overdubbed. I believe Phil Hill actually created sound-track for some in-car shots in post-production by driving the McLaren in a way to match the gearchanges of the footage. 

 

FH again:

I believe this is at one of the premieres of the film, maybe the European one.

...and captioned as below. Seems rather odd to have a display of sports cars, and a "World Premier" in Birmingham?!?!

 

 

 

Build-up for the 1967 World Premier for the film Grand Prix in Birmingham showing the latest Ford GT40 from Sid Taylor Racing and the Tyrrell Racing Organisation transporters delivering their individual race cars for the display

This one has me baffled-do you mean Birmingham,Alabama? I went to the UK premiere of 'Grand Prix' in Soho,London in march 1967.Tyrell F1 team did not start untill 1968..

basically, I think the Ebay seller has made up the 'World Premier' description to try and hype the sale of the slide. (and yes, I nearly bid on that slide, too)

Somebody must be able to identify who, where and when, surely? Is that Jochen Rindt on the right?

Does anyone remember a display of sports racers & F2 cars in Birmingham ,England in this period? Around 20 years before the Super Prix was created :clap: Apears to be a '62 BRM behind the Tyrell transporter.Don't think this photo has any relevence to thread subject.

I thought that too - at first. But it's not.

Indeed. I can see Mr Bean, though. Behind the Tyrrell transporter.

I'm eleven years old again. Feels great.

I have the DVD so can watch any time of the day or night, but there's something about a television appearance that's irresistible.

Those overhead Monaco shots are glorious.

It's times like this I feel privileged to have driven the Monza banking! Have I mentioned that before? ;-)

Just turned over and saw Eve-Marie Saint's hysterical overacting "Is this what you want...is this what you want!". Still grumpy!

Have you ever seen someone in such a real life circumstance, try viewing the distraught wives, husbands, friends faced with the dead body of a loved one on the TV news.

 

However it was obvious that some of the crowd in situ were surprised and unsure as to how they should react.

 

Hard to believe that Eva Saint Marie will be 91 on 4 July this year.

 

I also spotted Mike Cooper in the Monza footage photographing Yves Montand if I recall correctly.

Rob, no, I'm sure you haven't! (Anyway, it's one of the delights of us all growing old...we can't remember anyway!).  Please tell.  Were you in a front engined works Dino or a Sharknose?

Or even a Yamura?

 

I flicked over a couple of times during ads on another channel, it looks good in HD. As usual, I noticed something new - in one shot where Sarti is driving into or out of the pits it was Phil Hill's face under the helmet.

 

To return to the photo of the GT40; Sid Taylor owned c/n P1001 in early 1967 and it carried no. 28 at the Silverstone International on 29th April 1967, where John Fitzpatrick drove Ferrari 250LM c/n 5897a with no. 24.

 

So maybe those 2 cars WERE used for publicity for the film just before or after that meeting, when it went on general release round the UK, with the BRM P578 and something from Tyrrell added.

Gloomy-looking Ferrari team at Monaco, is that Bernard Cahier on the left? Maybe there was an out-take of an interview where some awkward question was asked........
