An exceptional piece of Hollywood history, this is Phil Hill's personal copy of the script for MGM's Grand Prix, the Academy Award-winning 1966 film directed by John Frankenheimer. This famous film included stars such as James Garner and Françoise Hardy, and also featured cameos from leading drivers of the day including Phil Hill, Juan Manuel Fangio, Graham Hill, and Jim Clark. Hill was particularly involved in the film as he was hired to serve as the technical advisor and drove many of the specially-built camera cars, which captured the film's realistic racing footage.
