In the last shot of the still-closed barn doors, just before Jemima says "It's awfully quiet in there!", the barn door on the left begins to open for a split second. See more »
Sir, have you come to help us?
[Catactacus walks over to him]
Are you going to take us out of here?
[Catactacus kneels in front of him]
What's your name, son?
Well, Peter, you shouldn't be afraid.
[Truly, the Toymaker and the children listen with interest]
Even in a terrible place like this, because there's always hope. That's what I always tell my children when they're... afraid.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was one of those films from my childhood that I never outgrew. Every song, every outrageous comic moment tattooed itself on my memory and my heart. I love this film. It's funny, it's touching and it's beautifully made. True, it's not for the cynical or for those who want realism. For those, however, who seek adventure, comedy, great songs and most of all fun this classic 60's musical delivers it all in great style. A truly fun family film, although very small children may not be able to sit still through the entire movie (even with the Intermission). CCBB will always be at the top of my favourite movie list. Do yourself a favour if you like fun musical comedies and see Dick Van Dyke and Sally Ann Howes do some truly scrumptious work.
