Joe Machin (William Campbell) is a womanizing Grand Prix racer on the European circuit who deceives his wife, Sesia (Marie Versini), at every pit stop. Stephen Children (Mark Damon) is a onetime driver, now a writer, who travels to Monte Carlo at race time to meet his fiancee, Monique

(Beatrice Altariba). Piqued to discover her apparently embroiled in an affair with Joe, the disgruntled Stephen decides to write a book exposing the daredevil as a dirty driver. When Joe discovers this, he challenges Stephen to a racing duel, which Stephen accepts. Ever one to take advantage of

ready sets and available locations, low-budget producer-director Roger Corman made this picture while on a European vacation, touring the racetracks in England, France, Belgium, and Monaco. Young Francis Ford Coppola, who served as sound man on the production, picked up some pointers from Corman;

he used the major cast members and equipment to make his horror film DEMENTIA 13 (1963) in Ireland. Another fast learner on the set was prop man Menachem Golan, who was later to form Cannon Films with his partner, Yoram Globus.
