CHRISTINA GREGG IN ROGER CORMAN'S 'THE YOUNG RACERS'

Christina Gregg with Mark Damon from 1963

There are fun bad movies and then there are bad movies that just don't work — as is the case of Roger Corman's THE YOUNG RACERS...

Which does use beautiful locations and the Grand Prix racing shots don't resemble stock footage thrown into the melodramatic romance sequences, which this has far too much of...

Howard Hawks would fare better (though not financially) with what this picture seems a precursor of, RED LINE 7000, following womanizing racers and their conquests...

In this case it's only one champion playboy, initially hated by an idealistic racer-turned-writer until the writer's saved by his target and then... 

Well there's a lot of conversations going nowhere, but this is more a showcase for our favorite British starlet, CHRISTINA GREGG (from THE BREAK, DON'T TALK TO STRANGE MEN, COVER GIRL KILLER and RAG DOLL), here playing one of several credited "International Playgirls" and she's prim, proper, a bit of a tease... and never stands still enough to get a good look... A shame since she's the most beautiful in an intentional bevy of exploitation-cinema beauties.
