Film - 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' - Dick Van Dyke

According to its inventor Rowland Emmet, a celebrated creator of improbable machinery, it's "A Gentleman's Aid to Aerial Exploration Mk.1". The bird man wearing the contraption is Caractacus Pott - recognisable as American actor Dick Van Dyke. From a hill overlooking the village of Turville, Buckinghamshire, he has been trying to compete with the birds for scenes in Albert R. Broccoli's musical fantasy "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", now in production at Pinewood Studios. Alas, Caractacus - a kooky inventor in the film - produced sparks, smoke and little else, except a scorch mark left on the seat of his flying apparel by one of the booster rockets. He made a spectacular nose dive, but never lifted off the launching ramp.

Film - 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' - Sally Ann Howes - Pinewood Studios

Britain's newest film star was introduced to the world at Pinewood Studios, Iver, Buckinghamshire. She is a sleek, highly-polished, two-ton package of magical beauty named Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. She's the car that Dick Van Dyke drives in "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", the biggest musical made in England, and in this picture even steals the limelight from Sally Ann Howes, who plays the role of Miss Truly Scrumptious. The film set in Edwardian England is based on Ian Fleming's stories about a magical car, which transforms into a flying machine and hovercraft whenever her zany inventor owner gets into trouble with the comic villains. Finished in brass, copper, aluminium and with a boat-shaped body in red and white cedar, the custom-built 100 m.p.h. star looks like rivalling Genevieve, who made her debut in a film of the same name with Kenneth More and the late Kay Kendall.
