The race in question was of the automobile variety in this one-reel subject. Car-race films were extremely popular during the first decade of the 20th century, especially those depicting the contests with the highest stakes. From all existing reports, Vanderbilt Cup Race was one of the lesser entries in this genre. Critics and fans alike complained about the lack of "thrills and spills," though some of the sharp turns taken by the contestants were good for a few gasps. History has not recorded whether any members of the illustrious Vanderbilt family showed up on screen.
