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!

What the industry says about US

London Live, UK

I have worked with Global Listings both during my time at Universal and more recently at London Live. They have been extremely professional and prompt with their delivery of our monthly highlights and are always quick to question anything that doesn’t seem right. I would definitely recommend them.

The Global Listings press schedules are very good. Especially as we have very little space in the TV Guide sections, these are still very useful to us. In addition, the Global Listings TV highlights documents and press reports are also a great way for us to make choices of what TV programmes to feature.
