Whacky, charming comedy about a cross-country race between two Brits driving their antique cars. Genevieve is the name that one of them gives his automobile, and the adventures she takes him on during his intended victory race include her breaking down many times along the way. Kay Kendall is delightful in a supporting role in this very warm, affectionate film.
