~~ Chitty Chitty Bang Bang ~~ It is back to my collection of musicals and here I review the classic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. When I started to think about the movie, I asked myself what comes to mind when I think about it, is it the characters, the silly jokes, all the production numbers. No; it...

An Ian Fleming novel produced by Albert ‘Cubby’ Broccoli featuring loads of gadgets and a flying car…you’d have to guess I was talking about one of the many James Bond movies but it fact and improbably it’s Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! From the first Bond film in 1962 to...

As another blustery bank holiday weekend scrapes by, so out come all the usual suspects, thrust upon us by unmerciful television executives with little regard for value for money in the licence fee stakes. 1968's 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' was adapted for the screen by Roald Dahl, he who had...

ConsA very long film, no thrills DVD

An epic amongst children’s entertainment is a good way to describe the 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, It is family entertainment at its very best. With a running time of 2 hours and 25 minutes it is extremely long for a children’s film. Remarkably however children as young as two or 3 will...

Consonly special feature=original trailer

This DVD was, I'm guessing, perhaps a rush job (hence a new special edition DVD now being released) because it includes only the film, the original theatrical trailer, and a information booklet (which, granted, is quite an interesting read) However the options presented on the DVD (the film, the...

Product Information : Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

'Here we are children, come and get your lollipops... ice-cream, chocolate... all freeeeeee today!' These words have put a generation of children in abject fear. The dainty dancing man in jester's garb with the delectable little sweet cart, becoming the horrific scrawny child catcher for the Baron who hates them. He wants all the toys for himself. Robert Helpmann, the Australian dancer extraordinaire, plays this wonderfully wicked kiddy-catching character with glee.<BR>Dick Van Dyke is charming as a daydreaming inventor who fixes up an old jalopy and, with the vivid imaginations of his two children Jeremy and Jemima, and a lady friend Truly Scrumptious, it is transformed into a flying, floating wonder car that carries them to a magical kingdom where they must endure the child catcher at first hand and save the kingdom's children from imprisonment. Lionel Jeffries plays the delightfully inventive grandpa and Gert Frobe the spoilt Baron who hasn't grown up. With some great songs and of course the fantastic flying, floating car this is one of th greatest family movies. Inspired by an Ian 'James Bond' Fleming idea.
