Biggles (1986) One minute the New yorker advertising expert Jim Ferguson is at a business party -- the next he finds himself way back in 1917 in a plane fight during World War I. Mr. Raymond explains to him that he has a time-twin, to whom he's relocated in space and time whenever one of them is in trouble. So he has to help his twin, biplane pilot Biggles, in his attempt to destroy a German super weapon, that could win their war. Of course it's hard for Jim to explain his sudden disappearances to his fiance, Debbie.

More Movie Taglines:
  • Meet Jim Ferguson. He lived a daring double-life with one foot in the 20th century and the other in World War I.
  • The ultimate adventure.
  • Never has a time warp been quite as warped as this.
  • Fast food executive Jim Ferguson stepped out of his 47th floor office to go to the bathroom... and ended up in the middle of World War I. History will be grateful forever.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Biggles: What did they train you for? Jim Ferguson: Cooking!
  • [Debbie and Chuck enter Jim's hotel room to find Jim dressed as a nun, and with a gun on the chair] Chuck: Religious Transvestite Bank robber. That one's not even in the book.
  • Debbie: [Debbie and Jim have traveled back in time to 1917] Jim, this is all a big put on, isn't it? Like Fantasy Island, right? Jim Ferguson: Come on, Debbie, it's not *that* bad. It's only World War I.
  • [Now in 1986, Biggles has climbed behind the controls of a police helicopter] Jim Ferguson: You can't fly this. You don't know how. Biggles: If you can fly a Sopwith Camel, you can fly anything.
  • [Biggles and Jim have returned to 1917 in the helicopter, and have been spotted by Von Stalhein] Biggles: Let's show this sausage guzzler what this thing can do. Jim Ferguson: Go for it.
Movie Trivia:
  • Features Peter Cushing's last screen performance.
  • A late 1930's Boeing Stearman and a modified late 1940s Belgian Stampe SV-4 were used to stand in for the WW1 aircraft flown and craft from the Shuttleworth collection added authenticity to the ground sequences.
  • Skysport Engineering was commissioned to build a replica Sopwith Pup which could be suspended from a crane and "flown" and crashed with a stuntman inside for the opening sequences of Biggles's rescue. Attention was given to every detail of its construction so that even when it was burnt the charred remains would look authentic. The wings and frame had to be selectively strengthened and weakened so that it would crumple and break to look as though it has fallen from 1000ft, not 10ft as in reality.
  • The scene where the helicopter lands and then takes off again from a flat wagon on a train traveling at over 40mph had never been attempt before this film and had to be repeated 15 times over two days before the directors were satisfied that it looked just right.
  • The weapon testing ground scene was filmed in the now disused Beckton Gas Works in London, Which was also used for the Vietnam scenes in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket (1987) a year later.
