With the recent highly-anticipated announcement of the DVD release for "Grand Prix", fans have had reason to rejoice. After a petition-signing campaign, Warner Home Video made the right call and decided to release this classic movie on the old digital video disc format. A two-disc, 40th anniversary special edition of John Frankenheimer's Academy Award-winning movie is now scheduled for a U.S. release on July 11.

Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, 16x9 widescreen format, and several special feature documentaries will allow viewers to experience this great movie like never before. But if you just can't wait another month, we have a new treat for you, via YouTube. A partial behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Monaco portion of the film is available after the jump. The description says it all: "This is Monaco in the mid 60s. The Making of the John Frankenheimer film 'Grand Prix' on Monaco. Sweet glamour of an era that will never be the same." Click through to see the whole 12-minute clip. Keep an eye out for the GT40 camera car!
