Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Special Edition

4

Book by Ian Fleming. Produced by Cubby Broccoli. Sets by Ken Adam. Except Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is about as far from a James Bond film as you can get. This is a psychedelic fairytale, coated in chocolate and tied up in a bright purple bow. Get past Dick Van Dyke's annoying patter and you'll appreciate the kitsch bombast, Chitty's sweet schtick made palatable by the evil that is - shudder - the Childcatcher (Robert Helpmann).
