Plot & Details

Completed in 1968, the made-for-TV The Challengers wasn't telecast until one year later. This Grand Prix melodrama top-bills Darren McGavin as a veteran racer whose wife (Juliet Mills) wants him to retire. A secondary plot involves Sean Garrison and Nico Minardos, who carry their on-track rivalry into their private lives. Anne Baxter, Susan Clark, and Sal Mineo are also on hand to urge on the winners, comfort the losers, and spout the cliches. Location footage of the actual Grand Prix is the sole tangible asset of The Challengers.
