The stock footage at Sebring overshadows the lame plot about a wealthy playboy auto racer and his alcoholic wife, who would like to see him dead. She convinces a rookie driver to do the dirty work. After a major pile-up in which her husband is killed and the rookie loses his legs, the

scheming wife tries to pull the rookie from his burning car. In the process she is disfigured. The script runs out of gas long before the finish line. Songs: "Bikini Baby," "Hip-So Calypso," "(Take Me) Far Away" (Alice Simms), "Coconut, Fall on de Head" (Simms, George Symonette).

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
