THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES (1965) Great Movies Classic

SATURDAY 11TH JUNE AT 2.20PM

“With their up-diddly-up up…” This goofy film’s famous theme song and fun flying machines make it a winning watch!​

Featuring an international ensemble cast including Stuart Whitman, Sarah Miles, Robert Morley, Terry-Thomas, James Fox, Benny Hill, Jean-Pierre Cassel and Gert Fröbe, the zany film is set during the craze of early aviation.​

In 1910, newspaper mogul Lord Rawnsley (Morley) decides to offer a large cash prize to the first pilot to successfully fly over the English Channel.​

Aviation whizzes enter the race, including the deceitful Percy Ware-Armitage (Terry-Thomas), wild American flyer Orvil Newton (Whitman) and British ace Richard Mays (Fox). ​

Orvil and Richard emerge as the front-runners, but both men soon fall head-over-heels for Rawnsley’s beautiful daughter, Patricia (Miles).​

It’s all magnificent fun!

Just wanted to say a big thank you for all the GL help we received during our transition of all our channels from Sony to Narrative. All the work with the Movie & Entertainment channels rebranding to Great! and the numerous EPG Listings we delivered to you around this time were always efficiency produced and distributed and updated across our EPG platforms.

As a company, we monitor our sales on daily basis and as such we potentially have to change schedules at a moment’s notice. When working with Global listings this is made easy. Their can-do attitude means we are not hindered by bureaucracy or rigid SLAs – we make the change and they do all the hard work... great service!
