Volledige Rolbezetting - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Alles wat Caractacus Potts uitvindt, loopt verkeerd. Zelfs de snoepjes die hij maakt, zitten vol gaten. Hoe komt het dan dat hij een auto heeft kunnen maken die niet alleen rijdt, maar ook vliegt en vaart? Wie dat wil weten gaat mee op reis met die wonderlijke Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Baron Bomburst's castle is Neuschwanstein, built between 1869 and 1886 for the Bavarian King Ludwig II, “The Mad King of Bavaria”. This castle is also famously known as the model for the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland, which was the symbol of the Disney Television programs Disneyland and it's successors “Walt Disney Presents (1958)” and “Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color (1962)”.
When the production filmed in the German town of Rothenberg on the Tauber, some locals were used. Senior citizens were cast as the townspeople of Vulgaria, while the local university's riding teams played the Vulgarian soldiers.
The original Broadway production of the stage musical “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” opened at the Hilton Theater in New York on April 28, 2005 and ran for 285 performances.
Continuity: When the spies are trying to catch the car under the bridge Mr. Scrupmtious crashes through their picture of the tunnel and into the truck but as the car goes through the picture you can see briefly that there isn't anything behind it. In the next cut they go right up the ramp and into the truck.
Revealing mistakes: The haircut machine removes a lot of hair from the man's head. However, we do not see any hair falling on the white cape around his neck.
Continuity: During the birthday party for the Baron, Truly pretends to be a doll who dances on a spindle within an opened large box of mirrors. This box is visible on the floor for all the guests to see. When Mr Potts appears as his own form of a doll rising from a box, he starts to dance, the camera pulls back and Truly and her music box are nowhere to be seen. When Mr Potts goes over to sing his duet with her, suddenly Truly is visible again.
