Plot Summary
Drivers have come from all over the world to compete in the annual race at Monte Carlo, Monaco. Sir Cuthbert Ware-Armitage (Terry-Thomas) is a wealthy industrialist who, on the eve of the rally, gambles away half of his company to Chester Schofield (Tony Curtis). Cuthbert proposes that the winner of the race takes everything, which inspires the other drivers, including an English Army duo (Peter Cook, Dudley Moore) and a treasure-smuggling convict (Gert Frobe) to put the pedal to the metal.
