CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG TRAILER...



No, not JAMES BOND this time, but created by
the same author (IAN FLEMING) and made by the
same film company (EON PRODUCTIONS), it's
CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG!  Enjoy.

I think of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, as Bond the Musical, wasn't the screenplay by Roald Dahl too? Broccoli might've given the Bond role to Dick Van Dyke, if it had been his decision alone. That would've made the St Marks Square scene better, I occasionally wonder why they didn't use the Chitty song over that scene, perhaps it was a rights issue?

You're tripping again, DSE. Dick Van Dyke as 007? "My names Bond...James Bond, cor blimey guv'nor, strike a light, luvaduck, apples and pairs, china plates, me ol' bamboo!"

DeadSpiderEye said...

Hey, don't diss The Dyke, the man's a legend. That Bamboo routine would've made Octopussy watchable and his flawless rendering of Cockney vernacular, is a cinematic masterpiece without parallel.

Kid said...

I yield to no man in my admiration for Dick (er, perhaps I should rephrase that), but Bond he ain't. (Louis Spence get out of here - that's not what I meant!)

"chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang we love you"...I'll be humming that all day now, Kid - and "Toot Sweets" and "Truly, Truly Scrumptious", great songs. I can remember the exact date I last saw this film - it was January 1st 1999 which I remember because I was spending New Year's Day with my parents and, unknown to us, it was my father's final New Year as he died in September of '99. He claimed to hate musicals and yet he always watched Chitty, Mary Poppins and The Sound Of Music.

Kid said...

Out of those three films, CJ, I've only seen two of them in the cinema. The Sound of Music in 1967 or '68 (it had been out for a few years), and Mary Poppins some time around the mid-'70s. I saw Chitty on TV around 1976 or '77 (the latter, I think). Talking of musicals, if you haven't seen it already, watch the new version of The Producers - funny as feck and with good music too.

Colin Jones said...

Kid, I'm amazed you haven't seen those three films regularly on TV as they seem to be shown all the time - I know The Sound Of Music's TV debut was on Christmas Day 1978, then it was repeated on Easter Sunday 1980 which is when I first saw it. My mother's favorite musical was 'South Pacific' and I've always liked 'Cabaret', I had the soundtrack too - "life is a cabaret, old chum..."

Kid said...

I HAVE seen them regularly on TV, CJ, and now have them on DVD. I didn't mean that I've ONLY seen two of them in the cinema - EVER - and not on TV, but that, out of the three of them, my FIRST viewing of two of them was in the cinema and the third one was on TV. Does that make any sense?

Colin Jones said...

Perfect sense, Kid - my mistake. And do you have South Pacific and/or Cabaret on DVD ?

Kid said...

Nah! Those three and The Producers (new version). Might get Seven Brides for Seven Brothers one day, 'cos it's got an amazing dance number in it. Cabaret's too gay.

Colin Jones said...

Cabaret's too gay ? And Julie Andrews prancing around the Alps with a bunch of kids singing "Do-Reh-Mi" isn't ? Aren't all musicals "gay", whatever that means ? Cabaret has been called "the musical for people who don't like musicals" because there's no scenes where everybody suddenly bursts into song-and -dance routines, the songs are all in the club except "Tomorrow Belongs To me" which is sung by a Hitler Youth member and everybody joins in. It's a great film and Liza Minelli won an Oscar, so there, Kid.

Kid said...

Nah, the musicals I like are all manly, masculine movies - the ones I'm not into are too camp. As for Liza Minnelli, remember that she's the daughter of Judy Garland, and that there's a reason why "Are you a friend of Judy?" is code-speak for gays. And as we all know, there's nothing gay about me! (Although I'm not so sure about my husband!) JOKE! JOKE! JOKE!
