The Sky-Bike 1967 U

United Kingdom Director. Charles Frend

All Tom Smith can think about is becoming a pilot. When he accidentally stumbles across a prototype man-powered flying machine, he convinces its eccentric inventor, Mr Lovejoy, to let him help get it off the ground. Working in secret, the two prepare their ‘sky bike’ for a high-stakes race.

The Sky-Bike was the final director credit for editor (Hitchcock's Sabotage) and director (The Cruel Sea) Charles Frend.
