About this deal

It has memorable numbers, staggering production design, and a sense of whimsy that's reflected in its cast. In 2011, Kritzerland released a two-CD set featuring the original soundtrack album, plus bonus tracks, music from the "Song and Picture-Book Album", the Richard Sherman demos, and six playback tracks (including a long version of international covers of the theme song). The lady who played lead is in her first and I believe last role on screen which is a shame as she had a presence on screen.

The script was cowritten by Roald Dahl and based on the novel by Ian Fleming, best known for his James Bond adventures.

Picton tells of how he was entrusted with the car's maintenance during production and how he later stumbled upon it once again, purchasing it for himself. There's a noticeable lack of grain that may startle purists, but considering detail is consistently visible, this doesn't seem to be a case of excessive digital noise reduction. A 46-still photo gallery contains various shots from the set, both candid behind-the-scenes and ones shot for promotional purposes. A DVD copy of the film is also included, but the only bonus feature it holds besides the sing-along is a trailer for the long-closed Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: The Musical (2:30). Millions of people would have to double their incomes to escape financial hardship, says anti-poverty charity Joseph Rowntree Foundation in a new report published today.

Even today at 30 years old I still have a laugh at the King and Queen and how he keeps tryng to bump her off. Nearly every musical number he was a part of is given some attention, and he even points out little details to look for in each. Dialogue is always clearly understood, but occasionally a little on the hollow side, noticeably differing from the more robust musical elements.

Chitty, on the other hand, is awfully indulgent, throwing in fantastic sequences and musical numbers just because it can. We see them fooling around with the other actors in between takes and even some of their (staged) time exploring the German countryside. The 1997 Rykodisc release, which has gone out of circulation, included several short bits of dialogue from the film between some of the tracks, but otherwise used the LP master. United Artists promoted the film with an expensive, extensive advertising campaign, hoping to reproduce the success of The Sound of Music (1965), and it was initially released on a roadshow basis.

out of a possible 4 stars, and describing it as "one big Edsel, with totally forgettable score and some of the shoddiest special effects ever.

Sally Ann Howes was cast as the female lead in April 1967, [15] soon thereafter signing a five-picture contract with Broccoli, [18] and Robert Helpmann joined the cast in May.

After closing in London, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang toured around the UK, and the UK Tour opened in Singapore on 2 November 2007. I can still remember being taken by my mum to the now closed Plaza cinema in Cardiff the very week the film was released in 1968 when i was five yrs old, and even remember where in the auditorium i sat and i can remember going to Macross to be bought the original Corgi toy version of the car that same afternoon.Why this is placed over the feature film six times instead of in an isolated set-top game is anyone's guess. The second half of the picture works much better, which is unusual, since many musicals have a strong first act to which the second can't compare ( The Sound of Music, Funny Girl, and Fiddler on the Roof immediately come to mind).
