Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls start your
engines. You're about to take an incredible ride with one of the most wonderful
family films of all time! Now celebrating its 45th anniversary, Chitty Chitty
Bang Bang has never looked or sounded better. Dick Van Dyke stars as eccentric
inventor Caractacus Potts, who creates an extraordinary car called Chitty
Chitty Bang Bang. It not only drives but also flies and floats as it leads him,
his two children and his beautiful lady friend, Truly Scrumptious (Sally Ann
Howes), into a magical world of pirates, castles and endless adventure.
