Default V-8 Fords on Film

V-8 Fords on Film

I love old black and white movies and I love Old Fords.
When I watch an old movie, I look for the old cars.

Many of us are familiar with some of the more famous Ford V-8s on the screen--John Milner's chopped 1932 Five Window Coupe (not Ford powered); the California Kid's awesome 1934 Coupe; and who can forget the 1934 Fordor used as the Bonnie and Clyde Death Car from the 1967 movie Bonnie and Clyde?

I have started a listing of Ford V-8s that appear in motion pictures. Some of the movies are pretty obscure.


1932 Ford Phaeton

The first V-8 Ford on Film for this thread is a 1932 Ford Phaeton from the 1932 Universal motion picture: If I had a Million, starring W.C. Fields and Allison Skipworth (the film is a series of short stories and the Fords can be seen in the W.C. Fields portion of the film). The W.C. Fields portion of the movie was filmed on location on California streets and at a used car dealership, so there are tons of old cars in this film.

Another Ford in the same motion picture: 1932 Model B Fordor Sedan.

Warning: there are a couple cringe-worthy moments in this film.

Stand by for more V-8 Fords on Film.

TonyM.

Great idea Tony.

I watch TCM sometimes and there are lots of old cars to be seen there. If I had a list I could keep an eye out for the old Fords.

Bring Up Baby (1938) with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn has a couple of '37 Cabriolets and a woody, maybe some others that I forgot. Pretty funny comedy and the cars are a definite plus.

I'm having a senior moment- There was a movie, somewhat a take off on It's a Mad Mad Mad World (which had Phil Silvers ruin a nice '48? Ford convertible), but it's later and has a Jewish family stop at the "Barbie Museum" only to find out it's the "Klaus Barbie Museum" and they escape in a '35-'36 phaeton made up as a Nazi staff car.

(I feel like the guy in the joke "Two couples are walking down the street, the husbands a few paces ahead of their wives. One husband says "We went to the movies the other night." The other replies "What did you see?" "I forget the name of the movie." "Well who was in it?" "I forget his name." "Well, what was it about?" "You know the name of the flower that has thorns on the stems?" "You mean rose?" "Yeah, that's it." He then turns and says, "Hey Rose, what was that movie we saw?")

Turns out it's Rat Race....

I love to watch old movies (or movies set in the '30s and '40s) for the cars, but I drive my wife crazy if I'm watching the movie with her because I watch for anachronisms, like a late '30s or early '40s vehicle in a movie supposedly set in 1935. Good example was Bingo Long's Traveling All Stars and Motor Kings, movie set in '35, but their '35 Ford phaeton gets towed by a '42-'47 Ford jailbar wrecker.

Made for TV movie, Murder in Coweta County, Georgia where one of the main vehicles was a green late 35 Pickup with the 36 style cab with the contoured A pillar. I should have bought that truck when I had a chance. I worked on that movie and I drove that truck several times in the movie. It was a nice old truck. That is a great movie with a lot of old cars, and depicts a true story of how a big shot in the County had basically unlimited power in those days. Andy Griffith was the bad guy and Johnny Cash was the Sheriff. Made in and around Coweta County, GA.

1947 Ford Super Deluxe Fordor Sedan V8.
The movie is Inspector 42. The scenes the car and I are in were filmed in Salt Lake City, Utah in March 2009. The movie was actually printed and shown in black and white so that it looks like an old black and white movie even though it's brand new. See trailer here: http://www.imdb.com/video/wab/vi3988588057/

I just rewatched Bringing Up Baby. It is a V-8 Ford Fest.

1936 Ford Cabriolet
1936 Ford Cabriolet
1937 Ford (unknown body style)
Two 1936 Cabriolets in the country club parking lot scene and a 1937 Ford in the background.

1934 Ford Station Wagon
1937 Ford Touring Fordor
1935 Ford Phaeton
Katherine Hepburn also drives a 1934 Station Wagon in the movie. When she steals a car to avoid a ticket, a 1937 Ford Touring Fordor passes by in the background. The constable drives a 1935 Ford Phaeton.

There are several other cars of various makes in the background.

Six V-8 Fords appear in Bringing Up Baby. That's pretty good.

I was flipping through channels in the shop a couple of Saturdays ago and ran across the Bowery Boys in "Jalopy." Like old Fords? How about old Fords on a dirt track? There's lots of film footage of flathead powered circle trackers that really show how it was. Corny, as all Bowery Boys movies are, but all the footage makes it truly worth watching.

Thanks all. A lot of great examples of V-8 Fords on Film.

Here is a another good one.

1937 Ford Station Wagon

At the beginning of the Marx Brothers classic A Day at the Races (1937), Chico is at the train station trying to get people to come to sanitarium he works for. He is using a beautiful 1937 Ford Station Wagon for hauling the customers.
Some good scenes with this Ford Woody.

1937 Ford Phaeton

The lovely Constance Moore plays W.C. Fields' daughter, Vicki, in the 1939 W.C. Fields comedy classic You Can't Cheat an Honest Man (1939). Vicki can be seen driving around in a beautiful 1937 Ford Phaeton. Warning: a cringe worthy moment in this one. Not to worry, the damage appears very slight.

1938 Ford Police Car

In the forgettable horror picture The Corpse Vanishes (1942), a 1938 Ford Fordor (?) Police Car present at a roadblock near the scene of the crime. Only the hood and part of the front door is visible. Don't know what body style for sure.

Ah....the best of the teen idol days .......... April Love with Pat Boone. Interestingly the 1942 Ford convert that he soups up morphs into a 1946 half way thru the movie.
And there is a slick 1957 Ford Ranchero in it too.

WOW. Just watched the Sting again last night, I wasn't paying any attention to the plot (of course I have seen it dozens of times) just looking at the neat collection of cars.

I have been traveling down south for the last several days.
I am back and here is my V-8 Ford on Film for today.

1938 Ford Convertible Sedan

A very young Glenn Ford is trying to marry his pretty fiance in Blondie Plays Cupid (1940). He drives her to the Justice of the Peace in a beautiful 1938 Ford Convertible Sedan. His unreasonable future father in law steals the convert sedan and Glenn and his fiance have to drive back to the homestead in a Model T that will only start if the driver pretends like he is going to get out and use the crank. There are many good shots of this 1938 Convertible Sedan.

Hey guys, thanks for reminding me about Back to the Future. Great job!

Hey Fordor Larry! I lost your phone number, I sent a pm. Thanks.

TonyM.

There was a series called San Francisco Beat. It was an early police show in S.F.(actually when S.F. was a great town) and the two detectives drove a 50 Ford Fordor. Also check out "To Please a Lady" with Clark Gable and Barbara Stanwyck. Great old movie about midget racing and going to Indianapolis. Will Geer(grandpa in the Waltons) is Gable's mechanic. Lots of old Fords in this movie. And check out "The Big Wheel" with Mickey Rooney. Another movie about auto racing and also has many old Fords in it.

I re-watched The California Kid (1974) this morning. I certainly like the 1934 Ford Three-Window Coupe (Not Flathead Powered) a lot better with the steel wheels it has in the movie than the slotted mags that it now has. There are a lot of 1950s cars in this movie (including a 1951 Ford Sedan). A very young Nick Nolte is the tow truck driver.

1951 Ford Sedan

Yes, that W.C Fields movie is called Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941).

I was saving this one for later, but since you mention it here it is:

1933 Ford Fordor
1933 Ford Fordor
1933 Ford Fordor
1937 Ford (model unknown)

I think they use two 1933 Fordors--one they drive like crazy and the other is the one that is wrecked. There is a very funny driving scene at end where the Ford is really put through a lot. Filmed on location on Southern California streets, there are a lot of old cars in this ending "chase" sequence.

1928-29 Ford Model A/V-8 Hot Rod
1936 Ford Cabriolet
1937 Ford Standard Tudor





One of my all time favorite V-8 Fords on film is this awesome 1928-1929 Model A/V-8 Hot Rod from The Best Years of Our Lives (1946). The car is only in the movie for an instant at the beginning.

Check out the Flathead engine with the hi-rise twin-carb manifold. Wow. This is a 1946 movie, so this is a real early iron hot rod from the forties. I wonder what happened to this one. The windshield posts look to be cut down. Also, looks like it has Phaeton doors with no door handles. What a cool early hot rod. Wish there was more to see.

TonyM.

Thanks for posting this one. I have the movie Girl Crazy (1943).

1932 Ford Phaeton

I watched this one today just to see this Ford I had almost forgot about. At first you want to think, "What a heap." But they make the car look worse than what it is. Body looks pretty straight. No hood sides allows the veiwer to see the flathead. Appears to be the only car in town in this movie. It is in a lot of scenes. And Judy Garland actually drives it in many of the scenes. And when it is sitting still, she can be seen gently and probably unconsciously moving the stick shift side to side to prove to herself the idling car was in neutral while she said her lines.

Hot Coupe, Thanks for reminding me about The Rocketeer, a real Ford Fest. I will be watching it soon and will post an update.

HotRodVideo, Thanks for the Touch of Evil tip. Have not seen it in about 10 years.

Thanks to all who have posted on this thread.


1937 Ford Phaeton

In Blondie Takes a Vacation (1939), a really beautiful 1937 Ford Phaeton makes a brief appearance. Car has fender skirts and spyder caps. Looks great.

Tony , Thanks again as I now have it and if you look close they have at least 4 cars for this scene - deluxe and standard . The one that is lifted up by the fire truck { check out the suspension } and the one that is spun off in the circling scene are props - look at what happens to it as it leaves the boom and disappears behind the wall . It basicially implodes . Got a kick outta this and it only cost me $5.00 . Most of the interior shots aren't the 33 but oh well . Most of these look to be 33's to me . There is a 34 5w parked just before the bridge in one scene . Anyone know what the name of the movie is where laurel and hardy trash a 36 roadster ?

1936 Ford Station Wagon (Modified)

Since Esther Williams' body was not modified for this movie and the woody's body was, it is my opinion that Esther has the better body in The Pagan Love Song (1950).

In my early days of working at MGM Studio that Deuce was still there. It was used is several of the Mickey Rooney Andy Hardy films. I bagged the radiator cap for a friend who had a Deuce. A couple years later it was sold at the infamous MGM auction.

I'll try to find a copy of "BLOCKHEADS". I know that the car in my still is a '35 Cabriolet, as I own one. Perhaps, they made this still at a different time and place and could not find a '36 roadster.
I'll post a picture, later, as my still is not here. I have a bunch of them with "T" Models. I'll post them too, over in the "T" section.

Thanks.
We tackled this one early on and covered the Phil Silvers' V-8 convertible on page one of this thread.
Looks like a 1947 or 1948, rather than a 1942.

See the film clip:

Thanks for the tip. I always liked this film.
Touch of Evil (1958) has a brilliantly filmed continuous long shot (tracking shot) at the beginning.

The W.C. Fields car....its story is well told in Ford Life magazine. The exceptional rag which you would love, Tony, if you have never seen one. It is very historical and centered around the Ford Motor Company in general, mostly prewar2.

Perry Smith,

Thanks for the info.

I have seen them.

I have something similar I think: Ford News, August 1941 (Vol XXI, No. 8). Artilces about FoMoCo and people using Ford automobiles. "Me and My Ford in Mexico," "Two Weeks in Indian Country," "Adventuring with Ford Cars" and "Wings for Defense" are a few titles of the articles in this Ford Mag. What date is the Ford Life with the Fields' car?

TonyM.


1932 Ford Roadster

A few shots of this car can be seen in the Jimmy Stewart Classic,
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939).

TonyM.

I was wondering how long it was going to take before someone mentioned this movie.
I am ready with the Fords.

Bob,

The title of this movie is Public Enemies (2009).

1933 Ford 5W Coupe
1934 Ford Fordor Deluxe
1934 Ford Fordor Standard
1934 Ford 5W Coupe
1933-1934 Ford Fordor Standard
1934 Ford Deluxe (sedan)
1934 Ford Fordor Deluxe
1933-1934 Ford (model unknown)

There may be more V-8 Fords than this. There is the Deluxe Fordor at the Airport and there is the Standard Fordor that Dillinger drives out of Crown Point for sure. Appears another 1934 deluxe used as well. The Coupes are in the background on the street scenes in Tucson and Chicago and another Coupe at the airport (might be the same 33 Coupe used in the Tucson street scene). 1930s eye candy.

TonyM.

I thumbed through my "Ford Life" collection last night and this is what I found-

Vol.1 No.5 '23-'25? Touring in "The Crazy World of Laurel & Hardy". This car is very effectively reduced (squished between two trolley cars) by the prop dept. to about a 36" wheelbase, with L&H and a young lady still sitting in it.
V1 N6 '29 Phaeton with W.C.Fields in "It's a Gift".
V1 N7 '46 Convertible in "Fugitive From Terror", starring Ida Lupino.
V3 N3 '40 Deluxe Stn. Wgn. in "Under Fiesta Stars", noted as a "B" movie.
V3 N3 '33 Std. Phaeton in Columbia All Star Comedy No. 457, and Stooges Comedy
No. 4030. This must be the W.C.Fields referenced car.
V3 N6 '39 Std. Stn. Wgn. in "Dangers of the Canadian Mounted", noted as "obscure".
V4 N3 '23-'25? Touring with Arthur Lake and Penny Singleton in "Blondie's Holiday".

I found other mentions of Fords used in films but no actual title given and also, there are quite a number of photos on studio lots and other locations with actors of the period.

I too have always loved watching American movies with Old Fords in them. Anyone remember that beauitiful apple green 34 Ford 5 Window Coupe that the equally beautiful "Angie Dickenson" drove in the TV movie about "Pearl Harbour" I was building my 34 Ford Coupe & seeing this coupe spared me on to get mine finished.............

Bruce,

We covered this one already, see post # 87.

I don't think they wreck the car though. I think it appears that the car is wrecked because of the way they filmed it, edited it and the perspective from which it is viewed. My opinion.


There are some really good shots of this car-- a great rear quartering shot and a good straight on from the front shot. Also a long shot from the side.

TonyM.

Mv 46 coupe and my 48 F1 were both used in the movie Big Fish about
10 yrs. ago. although you have to look close, the coupe is in the background in 2 scenes, the truck is in one but it is at night. My brother in law's 50 F1 is in one
good scene with the main charator, I have to say that the old cars and trucks
are about the best thing about the movie...at least the money was good..
Merry Christmas to all..Ernie

Check out "Drive a crooked road" with Mickey Rooney(1954),he is a mechanic and about an hour into the movie he has to "modify" a car to rob a bank, great shot of him pulling the old flathead out and dropping a new one in even has affter market heads and dual carbs.

Not too many liked the Dan Ackroyd/John Belushi movie 1941 (1979). I did--I guess that says a lot about me. A 1940 Fordor is totally destroyed when it is run over by a tank. Ouch. I wish they would have picked a different make of car to destroy.

1940 Ford Fordor
1938 Ford Standard Sedan Delivery
1940 Mercury Coupe
1930s Ford V-8 Truck (model unknown)

Hey Mike , When I got home from CA with the 33 5w and watched " BLOCK HEADS " I couldn't help but notice the car scattered around the garage looks like a 35 cab to me !???! Look at the windshield header - way too big to be a roadster . I'm not a 35-36 guy but it looks more 35 to me ?!!!? . Maybe your still is the car in the garage . Anyway I didn't find many fords on laurel and hardy or the bowery boys with the exception of " JALOPY " Bowery Boys 1953 that was already discussed earlier . Maybe the " KEYSTONE KOPS " ???? Maybe thats too old ? Some of the stooges stuff is rich in neat cars - the 33 std Phaeton is in at least 3 movies . The WC 33 4d's are really fun in slo-mo with one of the prop cars kinda imploding as it passes behind the sign being my favorite . Otis's 33 cab is good also . David J ps very happy with the 33

Mike , That's the still I have with WC and a trashed 33 4d . Looks like your Laurel & Hardy still is in fact the car in the garage in " BLOCKHEADS " . The WC movie gives a good look at the use of multiple cars in old movies - L & H seem to have done this also in blockheads with a 35 cab .

I would say that they shot the stills after the movie was made and they couldn't find another '36 roadster, but found a '35 cabriolet, on a car lot and figured, "This is good enough, nobody will notice". ....Who alive knows ?

Thanks David and Mike. I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

David and Mike,

It had been my guess too that the movie makers used the 1936 Roadster for a driver and when they "drove" the roadster into the garage, the movie makers spread the pieces of the 1935 Cabriolet in the garage and through editing give the movie viewer the impression that the 1936 car was smashed to pieces. The magic of Hollywood. The 1935 Cabriolet is included in the V-8 Ford Count for this movie in post # 114.




1941 Ford Coupe

This 1941 Ford can be seen on the street in The Boy With Green Hair (1948), a movie about a war orphan boy whose hair turns green for world peace and for war orphan rememberance (I am not kidding). I had to dig deep in my collection for this one. This is the film that launched Dean Stockton and probably led to severe emotional problems for co-star Pat O'Brien. That would be Pat O'Brien of Angels with Dirty Faces fame and not to be confused with Pat O'Brien the former sports reporter and Access Hollywood Anchor who likes to party and create sexually provocative voice mails.

Has anyone mentioned "State Fair" ? Many A's But I saw at least one 32. You would have to use freeze frame on some shots.

Yes, I watched State Fair (1945) just the other day on TMC.
Dana Andrews and Dick Haymes.

Good shots of this 1932 Roadster pick up in the opening scenes. Yes, there appeared to be other Fords, but since I was watching in real time and not on tape, I couldn't scan the back ground as good as I usually do. There appeared to be a 1942? Coupe and a 1937 Woody in the back ground on some scenes. Can't be sure because I couldn't stop the show. I'll stick with what I know for sure:

1932 Ford Roadster Pick Up

1936 Ford Convertible Sedan
1936 Ford Tudor
1937 Ford (open car/model unknown)






This 1936 Convertible Sedan is from the cult classic Reefer Madness (1936); this movie is also known as Tell Your Children. In the scene where the 1936 convertible sedan strikes the old man, a 1937 Ford open car can be seen in the background. Only the front portion of the car is visible (with top up) so it is impossible to determine whether the car is a Roadster, Cabriolet, Club Cabriolet, Convertible Sedan or Phaeton. The movie must have been made in late 1936 in order that a 1937 Ford is in the picture.

The 1936 Convertible Sedan has some accessories, including fender skirts, spot light and fender mounted turn signals.

It was a while ago, but I remember seeing mickey rooney driving a 32 phaeton and later in the movie him driving off the road and the 32 ends up on its side with the radiator steaming away. can't remember the name of the movie or co stars , might have been the same phaeton that was used in the w.c. feilds movie. Anyone out there recall the name of the one with mickey rooney?

Thanks for the effort. After a couple of months of searching, I found my copy of The Blockheads. The tape snapped. Too bad. The tape was about 25 years old.

I am building up quite a listing of old V-8 Fords on Film. I have pages and pages yet to be posted; I really appreciate any help I get on this little side project of mine. Thanks to all who posted on this thread.



MORE V-8 FORDS ON FILM

Several days ago I watched a movie called The Crooked Way (1949).
Turned out to be a late forties Ford Fest.

1949 Ford Sedan
1949 Ford Convertible
1947-48 (?) Ford Coupe
1949 Ford Sedan
1948 Ford Fordor Police Car
1948 Ford Fordor Police Car
1948 Ford Fordor Police Car
1948 Ford Fordor Police Car
1946 Ford Tudor Sedan
1947-48 Ford Fordor
1949 Ford Fordor Sedan

There were a lot of V-8 Fords in this one and I was truly afraid of counting the same cars twice. Lucky for me many of the cars appeared at the same time in the same scene toward the end, assuaging my fear of double or triple counts of individual cars. There could be more Fords in this one than this count.

WOW a blast from the past!! There is some else who remembers this film! I watched it as a kid, and I believe they end up putting dynamite or nitro glycerin in a hot rod and driving it into the monster. Wasn't there was another movie about that time called The Tarantula?????

David,

Here it is:

Topper (1937)

1935 Ford (model unknown)
1932 Ford Model B Roadster

I am guessing the car is a Model B because it has no "V-8" Badge on the head light bar. I could not get a good look at the hub caps.

How about the 36 convert in Paper Moon. As I remember it was not just a glimpse but in many scenes running and setting still. A real good movie.

Here is the rest of the Topper series of movies:

Topper Takes a Trip (1939)






1932 Ford DeLuxe Roadster
in Topper Takes a Trip (1939)





And in Topper Returns (1941)

1932 Ford Roadster



Not sure if it is the same car in Topper Returns and Topper Takes a Trip. The roadster in the original Topper appears to be a Model B because of the lack of a V-8 badge on the headlight bar.

In 1985 a movie called "Mischief" was filmed in the Nelsonville, Ohio, area. Fords were parked on the street and a 55 or 56 was in one of the near crash scenes with the star's old Studebaker. The 50's era movie included Kelly Preston (now Mrs. John Travolta). She spices up the movie with a sex scene that was as hot as the great cars in the flick. There's a good trailer at http://www.flixster.com/movie/mischief

There's a Ford V-8 in The Fast and the Furious (1954). No, not that one. This movie was made in 1954 and if you like Jags, Allards, MGs or Porsche this is the movie for you. A 1953 model can be seen briefly in this one.

I just watched "All The King's Men", the other night. In the first 15 minutes, a 1934 Ford Cabriolet is in it, for about half the time. Later, a 1937 Ford Cabriolet gets wrecked, but they didn't show the wreck, just it racing down the road.

One-armed Spencer Tracy beats the crap out of bully Ernest Borgnine in Bad Day At Black Rock (1955). Only a couple of V-8 Fords at the end but a Mercury Station wagon is in a lot of shots.

1940 (?) Ford Tudor Police Car
1942-1946 (?) Ford Fordor Police Car
1942 Mercury Station Wagon

The two police cars are hard to see clearly for the details.
Maybe someone else can look too.

The Last Picture Show.. Lots of great old fords, there is one scene
where they are driving to another town in a ford
coupe, when you see the front of the car it has
parking lights like a 46 or early 47, when you see
the back of the car, it has the trunk molding of
the late 47 or 48, not sure what happen, maybe
they used 2 differant cars in the same scene

I just "stole" this off the "A" Model Forum. It's a trailer of "PAPER MOON", which shows a 1936 Convertible Sedan along with the "A" Roadster, several "T" Models, etc.

I don't think they wreck the car though. I think it appears that the car is wrecked because of the way they filmed it, edited it and the perspective from which it is viewed. My opinion.


There are some really good shots of this car-- a great rear quartering shot and a good straight on from the front shot. Also a long shot from the side.

There are a lot of old cars in this movie. The 1940s look is great.
They did a great job making it look like the 1940s.

I love 1937 Fords; there are two great looking 37s in Merrily We Live (1938):

1937 Ford Station Wagon
1937 Ford Standard Fordor


There are a couple of nice Dusenbergs in this one too.

Back in post #7, I mentioned a movie, but couldn't remember the name. It was "Rat Race," a take off on Mad Mad Mad Mad World, but not as good (or memorable.)

On Moday 3/28 I participated on a movie shoot with my 36 Phaeton. The movie is "J Edgar" directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Supposed to be released in 2012.

My car was static, and just parked at the curb and judging by the camera angles may or may not appear in the final shots.

Highlight of the day was when Clint Eastwood came over and we had a conversation about the car. The way it was parked he could see in through the hood louvers and said "I see it has the original engine". Who would have thought he would know that???? He told me he once had a 46 Convertible 'but not as nice as yours'. Made me feel good about the encounter. He's very low key and soft-spoken.

Having your car in a movie entails lots of standing around - we were there for the entire day. The catering was excellent though.

The scene was shot at the George Washington Masonic Temple in Alexandria Va.

Did you see the movie "The Blob" with Steve McQueen. Has a 1940 Ford Coupe in it.
Also "Thunder Road" with Robert Mitchum has a 40 White Lightin rum runner then upgrades to shoebox 50 Ford.

His unreasonable future father in law steals the convert sedan and Glenn and his fiance have to drive back to the homestead in a Model T that will only start if the driver pretends like he is going to get out and use the crank. There are many good shots of this 1938 Convertible Sedan.

Hey guys, thanks for reminding me about Back to the Future. Great job!

I posted this in November, but I recently found this photo of the 1938 Convertible Sedan appearing in this movie. Beautiful car.

I found this on Fordbarn, under "OT Gee Bee" by jim TN.
It shows a bad thing happening to a nice 1934 Cabriolet. Let's hope this was all done with "movie magic".
It is from the movie, "The Rocketeer".

This week's V-8 Ford on Film:

Call Out the Marines (1941)

There are two pretty good chase scenes in this 75-minute movie. The first chase scene involves two very early model army jeeps. Some really wild driving with these two jeeps and four passengers each. Wow. The second chase scene comes at the end and involves a chase between a car and motorcycle/sidecar combo. The second chase was apparently filmed on location in Southern California--tons and tons of old cars in this one.

There are ten V-8 Fords at least and probably more. More than once I could see a scant hint of the 35-36 hard spare cover and the famous dip in the rear bumper, but these cars could not be positively identified and appeared too brief or were too blurry.

One 1936 Cabriolet had a weird after-market trim on the hood sides that consisted of three thick chrome bands, the first one beginning at the cowl at the top of the side panel and wrapped all the way around the to front of the grill, meeting at the center. Three of these were evenly spaced down the hood sides following the pattern outlined above. I could find no photos of this car on line; I will save the movie and attempt to photograph the car with a view to posting it on this thread in the future. Lots of Fords in this one and great views of So Cal in 1941. Sorry no photos with this one.




1936 Ford Cabriolet
1941 Ford Deluxe Tudor
1936 Ford Tudor
1935 Ford 5W Coupe
1936 Ford Fordor
1938 Ford Deluxe Fordor

Dr. Welby and Carole Lombard star in this Hitchcock comedy Mr. and Mrs. Smith (1941). One Ford appears briefly in the background. Slim pickins for Fords (or old cars in general) in this one.

You guys will love this.

The get away car for the bank heist in the movie "Odds Against Tomorrow" (1959) is a 50 51 Chevy wagon. What??? They explain that it has been suped up. Later you get a quick look under the hood at a late Ford Flathead with 2 2s and a lot of chrome! A Ford in a Chevy? go figure.

I was only able to glimpse the front end briefly but the hood latch, grill and headlights gave it away. Look away for an instant and you'll miss it.

Don't know if anyone has already mentioned it here, but the general dearth of Fords in the classic films of the '30's and '40's can be directly attributed to Old Henry's anti-Semitic articles in The Dearborn Independent in the early '20's. The film studios were for the most part owned by eastern-European Jews, who did not take to kindly to this kind of nonsense. There was a boycott of Ford products during that era, which extended to the movie studios. So, you get Humphrey Bogart driving a '37 Plymouth in High Sierra, and the same dog in The Big Sleep, when we all know what he would really be driving!
