Classic Movie Friday!

Dick Van Dyke and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968)

Dick Van Dyke   Sally Ann Howes   Lionel Jeffries   Heather Ripley   Adrian Hall

Caractacus Potts is an inventor, raising a son (Adrian Hall) and a daughter (Heather Ripley) without a wife. An eccentric Grandpa (Lionel Jeffries), lives with them. Dad’s inventions are great, unorthodox, but great! Their home is run down but so much fun! And! They have a windmill! I loved the windmill.  🙂  The Potts are broke. Even though they don’t have any money, Dad stumbles upon a way to earn the funds to purchase a less than desirable old race car and he turns it into an amazing piece of machinery.  Caractacus, Jeremy and Jemima, along with their new lady friend, Truly Scrumptious (Sally Ann Howes) go on a grand adventure to save Grandpa! He’s been kidnapped! *gasp*

I love Dick Van Dyke. He’s a great entertainer. He can sing, dance, act!!! He didn’t disappointment me in this film. The story is silly, ridiculous and wacky but it is also touching in places and so much fun. I saw this film for the first time a few days ago. I know! This may sound odd, but I think, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was grateful to Caractacus and his children for saving said vehicle, and served them well for years and years!  🙂
