Editorial Reviews

Screen legend Tony Curtis leads an all-star international cast in this hilarious, romantic and action-packed romp! Set in glorious Monte Carlo, this hugely entertaining follow-up to Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines follows the dashing Schofield (Curtis) as he teams up with the scheming Sir Cuthbert Ware-Armitage (Terry-Thomas) in a zany, winner-take-all car rally beset with scheming competitors, treacherous cliffs - and a very beguiling blonde (Susan Hampshire.)

This is a very funny film with a strong cast of characters, lead by Terry Thomas and Tony Curtis and more than ably supported by Eric Sykes, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, Gert Frobe, Susan Hampshire, Walter Chiari and more.

Thomas is at his fiendish best, Curtis is charming, Hampshire gorgeous and Cook and Moore are hilarious.

This is real enjoyable romp.....much better than it's predecessor "Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines" and almost as good as "the Great Race"

It was such a pleasant surprise to see this one released...FINALLY !!

Even my kids enjoy it, so the comedy has not lost any of its shine over the decades.

Recommended Highly, Have Fun.

Various comic characters from different countries gather for a road rally through Europe in the 20's, setting the stage for plenty of good-natured, family friendly hijinks. The international cast (including Tony Curtis and the wonderful Terry-Thomas) is very good. Although lightweight, the story moves along at a good pace. If you enjoy the kind of madcap comedies with large ensemble casts that were made so often in the 60's (think "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World"), you'll probably get a kick out of this.

this film is a classic. it's great in so many ways. it's a prime example of old school filmmaking. they literally don't make films like this anymore. a cast of classic comic actors, assembled for a romp onscreen. the situations are clean, anyone in the family can watch the film. terry-thomas is dynamite, playing his typical nasty english cad role. tony curtis is good, playing chester scofield as a wacky nutty type of american adventurer. the subplot of germany vs. u.k. is funny as are the italian racers who want the fame and fortune, but also the girls. and the girls! early feminists. a great film all around. a must buy!

About the only thing you can say about this movie is they do have some very unique cars. The rest of the plot is much like that of a Tony Curtis, movie "The Great Race" which was a much funnier movie, with Jack Lemmon, Peter Falk and Nattile Woods. This was made as a kind of sequel to "Those Magnificant Men in their flying machines". Actually I like all three movies and enjoy the slapstick humor and the great cars and stars that make these movies.

This movie is a perfect companion to Tony Curtis' other auto car race movie, The Great Race. The package shows the aspect ratio as 1.78 widescreen, which would fill the whole screen of a HDTV. The actual ratio shows as it should be having been filmed in Panavision as 2.35:1.

This movie featured some great comedic moments during a wild car race to Monte Carlo. The acting is pretty good and this movie is a good follow up to an earlier movie called Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines. Overall, I enjoyed the movie and I have been looking for this on DVD for a good while.

Oh where to begin? I've been checking Amazon for YEARS, hoping this beautiful nugget would appear, and was stunned today to see it had. This film is one of my fondest childhood memories, in fact, one of the real reasons I love movies so much, is having seen this as a kid. This is farce cinema at it's finest. Born from "Those magnificent men in their flying machines" the film recreates the era when a big race would capture the imagination of the world. And while it's the sequel to "Magnificent men", it's vastly superior to it's predecessor. The formulas are the same. In so many ways, you're watching the same film, with cars instead of planes, the difference being the cast, which headed by Tony Curtis is superb. Terry-Thomas, Dudley Moore, Susan Hampshire, Gert Frobe all add to the festivities, and make their substories both interesting and vital. The characters in "Jalopies" are so much more interesting than "Flying machines", as are the substories. The scene in the lodge is classic, fun and typical '60's farce. Certainly, it will be a bit dated, as this type of film is not made any more, but that really adds to the entertainment value. I will say this. The danger for me, in buying these older films, cherished memories from childhood, is that the entertainment value is somehow lost. Best example for me is 'Mad mad mad mad world". I was so thrilled when it dropped on DVD, that when I watched it, it wasn't as funny as I'd hoped. The humor didn't translate, and it was so, so long. Of course, these are older films, made in a style we don't see today, and because they are comedies, they stack up differently than old dramas. Comedy is such a different art, so dependent on personal taste, and with comedy, things that seemed funny not so long ago, lose something today.Read more ›
