Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there are blink-and-you'll-miss them swear words and ethnic slurs, and a few stunts of a don't-try-this-at-home-with-cardboard-wings variety. One running gag concerns a Frenchman who seduces a string of women throughout (nothing explicit is shown). Some video boxes of this feature carry a "G," others a "PG," and there's no difference in content.

Sexual Content

A nude in a painting obliquely glimpsed. The model herself quickly clads herself in a towel. A flirty Frenchman insists on greeting and romancing girls with slaps on the bottom. Near the end he heads for a handy haystack with a woman.

Violence

Flying-machine crashes and car-chase crackups are pretty frequent, but harmless. A punch-out. A clumsy duel fought with outsized rifles.

Language

"Hell" uttered, the s-word muttered, and the ethnic slur "nip."

Social Behavior

The cast is abundantly, exuberantly filled with hearty stereotypes, such as stiffly proper Britons, opera-singing Italians, laid-back cowboy Yanks, militaristic Germans, romantic Frenchmen, etc. (the Japanese entrant is a surprise; he has British mannerisms instead). There isn't any meanness in any of it. Noble, honest pilots win; the shifty, underhanded one doesn't.

Consumerism

Mention of some real-life London newspapers.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking (with one of the wine glasses poisoned); cigar and cigarette smoking.
