According to several people, including Dick Van Dyke, Ken Hughes was a talented 'action' director, but they felt he wasn't as good at directing people, especially children. Van Dyke, Sally Ann Howes, and members of the crew had to entertain the children and guide them through their performances. Ken Hughes himself, later admitted he did not enjoy making this film.

When they take Chitty out for the first time, Grandpa says he is going to Alaska. At the time, it was the District of Alaska or the Alaska Territory. It wouldn't be unusual for someone to shorten the name. See more »
Surprised folks wouldn't like this delightful film!
It surprises me that some people think this is a horrible film. I was 3 when this film was released and for as long as I can remember I've loved it! The songs are fun, especially Hushabye Mountian, Chu-chi Face and Me Ole Bamboo. This movie is both light, cheery as well as dark and creepy, the Child Catcher to this day is one of the scariest villians I know! And know it is a fabulous musical in London! Hopefully someday it will come to Broadway, I'd love to see it on stage!.
