'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang'
Sally Ann Howes and Van Dyke costarred in the 1968 film. "It took over a year to shoot," Van Dyke said. "It was Cubby Broccoli and the whole 'James Bond' crew, so they knew their special effects. That car was a beautiful piece of work. The score was by the Sherman brothers again; the music was great.
"I had some misgivings in the beginning, I think because Walt Disney wasn't involved. 'You can't do a children's movie without Walt Disney!' But Marc Breaux and Dee Dee Wood, who did the choreography for 'Poppins,' also did it for 'Chitty.' They really put me through the paces."
