Behind the scenes Edit
Ian Fleming wrote Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang in 1964, which was soon adapted into a film, co-written by Roald Dahl. Clifford Culley did matte painting for this film. Shawcraft Models provided props for both Chitty Chitty and several James Bond films.
In 2011, Frank Cottrell-Boyce was commissioned to write sequels to Fleming's 1964 classic, beginning with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again, which was published in October of 2011.
Fleming was played by Jason Connery in Spymaker: The Secret Life of Ian Fleming, and by James D'Arcy in Age of Heroes.
