Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Continuity mistake: Truly crashes into the pond three times: first when the kids are playing in the road and she takes them home, second on the day of the picnic when she says she has nothing else to do and will go on the picnic too, and third at the end of the film when Potts finds out he is rich. In the second of these three, when Mr. Potts carries Truly from her car in the pond, the end of the ribbons on the back of her dress gets soaked in mud, but when you see her again at the beach there is no sign of the dirt.

Continuity mistake: Dick Van Dyke is trying to show his new whistle sweet to Mr Scrumptious, the sweet factory owner. His dog is tied up to a bicycle outside. When his dog hears the whistle he knocks over the bicycle whilst trying to get free and runs up the steps. In the immediate shot following the bicycle is standing up again.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Chitty is taking off from the castle, Caracticus looks down at the toymaker and Peter and says, "Bye bye". If you look closely, right in front of them, a boy runs across holding a stick he stole from one of the cavalrymen. He is waving it around and you can tell it's fake because it flops around like rubber.

More quotes from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang


Question: Why doesn't the Baron like the Baroness and keeps trying to get rid of her? I mean, if it wasn't for her and the law, he wouldn't get all the toys the Toy Maker makes, so why does he not like her?

Chosen answer: He feels like she ruins all of his fun. He is kind of like a child and she is like his mother figure more than a husband and wife.

Question: If Truly Scrumptious' father is 'Lord Scrumptious', then as his daughter, why isn't she 'Lady Scrumptious?'. If I remember correctly, she is referred to as 'Miss Scrumptious'.

Lavender

Chosen answer: By rules of courtesy titles in the United Kingdom, Truly Scrumptious would inherit no title. Her parents being Lord and Lady Scrumptious, she would be simply Miss Truly Scrumptious. However, if her father were a baron, she would be called "The Honorable Miss Truly Scrumptious." Were her father an earl, duke or marquess, she would THEN be the "Lady Truly Scrumptious." But again, children of a lord and lady do not receive a title. When the lord dies, his oldest son inherits his father's title of lord. If there are no boys, it might pass to the eldest daughter. In this case, only upon her father's death would Truly become "Lady Truly Scrumptious."
