It’s no secret that the Hollywood Comet loves musicals.
In 2010, I revealed I had seen 400 movie musicals over the course of eight years. Now that number is over 600. To celebrate and share this musical love, here is my weekly feature about musicals.
This week’s musical:
Chitty Chitty Ban Bang (1968) – Musical #724
Dick Van Dyke, Sally Ann Howes, Lionel Jeffries, Gert Fröbe, Anna Quayle, Benny Hill, James Robertson Justice, Heather Ripley, Adrian Hall, Desmond Llewelyn
Caractacus Potts (Van Dyke) is a down-on-his-luck inventor restores a former winning race car. He takes his children (Hall, Llewelyn) and an acquaintance, Truly Scrumptious (Howes), on a picnic where he tells them a magical adventure story about the car.
