I'll hazard a (wild) guess ... The Great Race?

I'm so bad at these.

Sean, Jessica and Trev have it. Note the overhead view on the final shot... they're flying away!

Ah, of course. I've blanked all memory of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" ... it's probably the first film I ever hated with real passion. Can't remember why.

I agree that it's great having a woman directed a wonderful action film. I also think male directors really admire Jane Campion - Quentin Tarantino recently said that he really enjoyed Bright Star - can you imagine? I think it's because Campion, though she makes her movies for women, never shies away from anything raw or morbid. The Piano proved that.

oh this one was so bizarre, because I knew I knew the image, but couldn't figure out from where. Ah in the corners of my childhood mind.

That was Truly Scrumptious!

I totally forgot about this movie! Isn't there some creepy thing in it where people pretend to be dolls?

I love the guesses, though. I would have guessed "Thoroughly Modern Millie." What is it about late 60s early 70s Amercian films that made them have so many old-timey flying sequences?
