“It is Marvelous to Go Very Fast”

One of my favorite lines from Grand Prix. Of course, virtually any of Françoise Hardy’s lines as Lisa are good. Why she’s wearing Pete Aron’s helmet in this shot though, I don’t know.

    That’s my favorite line too. Lisa is such a wonderful character — so carefree and full of life. Without her, the movie would be pretty dull.

    Well, it didn’t hurt that she was so very pretty.

    She’s also had a huge 50-year career as a singer and songwriter, selling millions of records, right up to the present. Some early favorites: Ton Meilleur Ami, C’est a l’amour auquel j’pense, Bati Mon Nid, and many, many others. It was a lost opportunity when they didn’t interview her for the Grand Prix DVD reissue; it would have been interesting to get her retrospective on the whole thing.
