Top Ten Best Movies of 1965
This movie came out around the same time the Space Race between the United States and the Soviet Union kicked into a new gear. For its first audiences the film's depiction of an international flight competition taking place in an earlier, lower-tech era offered a fun-house mirror reflection of contemporary adventures by Space Age pioneers.
Terry Thomas is the MVP of this movie. His performance was the inspiration for one Dick Dasterdly.
Funniest movie of the decade!
