Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

The entire adventure with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in the land of Vulgaria is just the ‘pirate story’ that Jeremy and Jemima (Adrian Hall, Heather Ripley) requested from their father, Caractacus (Dick Van Dyke) during the picnic at the beach. When the story ends, Jeremy and Jemima insist that “Daddy and Truly (Sally Ann Howes) get married!” Embarrassed, and too class-conscious to realize that Truly does love him, Caractacus drops her off and returns home with the children. In his living room, he finds Grandpa (Lionel Jeffries) and Lord Scrumptious (James Robertson Justice) waiting to tell him that ‘Toot Sweets’ are destined to become the most popular doggie snack ever, and that he’s going to be rich. He rushes back to find Truly, once again running her car off the road. He carries her to Chitty, proposes marriage and drives off describing his quaint business plan. A reverse shot from outside the car reveals that Chitty is flying.
