Those Daring Young Men In Their Jaunty Jalopies  In an international car rally, competitors must travel from various points in Europe to Monte Carlo, then race their cars. Things are complicated by smuggling, cheating, honor, inventions, medicine, and love at first sight. Great cast of International actors. Hilarity Shifts Into High Gear

Wacky Races style comic caper

Those Daring Young Men In Their Jaunty Jalopies  The movie isn’t that funny, although you probably don’t notice that what with the great actors on display – The wonderful gap toothed Terry-Thomas as a kind of Dick Dastardly Figure, Eric Sykes as his Mutley style sidekick,It has Tony Curtis romancing Susan Hampshire & The great comic actors Peter Cook & Dudley Moore as British Army men who have the best scenes and funniest lines & Gert Frobe (Goldfinger) as a escaped convict transporting stolen treasures. The scenery is wonderful as they travel throughout Europe Mostly Britain and France and has a nice 1920’s feel, just don’t expect many laughs, just sit back and enjoy some of the best British Actors many of who are no longer with us.

A fun film to watch if you like the cast


My wife prefers “The Great Race” over this film. Both films are period comedies involving automobile races. Both star Tony Curtis. As for me, I prefer “Those Daring Young Fools in Their Jaunty Jalopies” (aka “Monte Carlo or Bust.”) Why? The supporting cast.

First of all, I’m a huge Terry-Thomas fan. So for me, this was reason enough to purchase a LaserDisc of this film. Eric Sykes, Gert Frobe, et al are all good too! This is also a sequel of sorts to “Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines.” Terry-Thomas plays the grown son of the character that he played in the earlier film. And, Eric Sykes is back as his side-kick. Both films also feature Gert Frobe as a German, and both films were directed by Ken Annakin.
