Review
Set in 1910, this rip-roaring comedy is a 'Wacky-Races' in the air. In a quest to prove that Great Britain is top dog in the air, Lord Rawnsley (Robert Morley) puts up a £10,000 prize. Many stereotypical nationals take part (there's a fanatical Prussian determined to win at all costs), a sextet of women, villains and good guys. Featuring plenty of slapstick and filmed in that wonderful technicolor. A great Sunday afternoon film.
