  • DVD has wrong region. Not for USA region. Mar 21, 2016
    by peggyanti@yahoo.com

    The supplier did not recognize the DVD. They insisted us to accept it. They said it was region 1 for US but all of my devices (DVD player & laptop) could not play it because it was wrong. They did not want to admit it.

    TITLE: Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines; or, how I flew from London to Paris in 25 hours and 11 minutes
    GENRE: Big Cast Comedy about pre-WWI Aviation
    CAST: Stuart Whitman, Sara Miles, James Fox, Gert Frobe (Auric from Goldfinger), Robert Morely, Terry Thomas, Irina Demick, Red Skelton and Benny Hill
    PLOT: To increase circulation and aid in Britain 'ruling the skies', a London newspaper Publisher organises a race from London across the English Channel to Paris in 1910. The publisher's daughter experiences dual attractions (to the American and machines but not her 'fiance'). Amid mayhem and sabotage, a recurring love interest of the French aviator appears to be the first septuplets which were separated at
    birth. You'll love Gert Frobe's trumpetless trumpet playing. And boss, da Planes! da Planes, all real replicas built from original schematics.
    A mid sixties, spend the money on production and the theaters will fill up effort by 20th Cent Fox.
    RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 7.5 of 10 (The redeeming value to take it higher are the keystone kopish Benny hill fire department chases and also his typical changing booths at the beach scenes. And the intro Red Skelton antics about all previous generations of man wanting to fly. For these two pieces, the puzzle is worth persuing)
    ADDED DVD BONUS: The schematics for the machines are included if you desire to build one. Extensive behind the scenes photos and stories., especially how Whitman and Miles got along.
