I saw Lawless recently, it's a great movie and some great cars...especially a cherry 32 roadster....I was worried it was going to get shot up like some of the others, but it survives intact......recommend the film, a good watch.

Don't know how I ever missed Strategic Air Command with Jimmy Stewart. Just watched it last night. The only thing cooler than the cars were those B-36s. What a freakin monster! Wonder how long it took to change an engine on one on those?

Good Luck Mr. Yates (1943)

1937 Ford Cabriolet

The cabriolet appears only briefly at the beginning. You would be better off staying in the garage than to waste time with this movie. TM

Gun Crazy (1949) has a lot of old cars and a lot of on location street scenes. One interesting fact about this movie is that cameras are installed in some of the action cars and the viewer gets to go for a ride on 1940s California streets. Great looking. This movie was also known as "Deadly is the Female" (1950). The movie is listed as a 1950 movie in many databases but the credits on the film say 1949. Lots of Fords.

loved to see thunderbolt and lightfoot.bad guys driving a 51 merc coupe all to pcs.... and of course "COBRA".and his hotshot 50 merc cpe..wrecked that one and i was told 7 others just in that movie

movie "from here to eternity,",if you watch closely,, the lincoln convertable that went over the cliff with hugh obrien and girl friend, the car on fire as it went over the cliff was a 46 ford conv just a couple that i remember.. Spencer tracy drove a new 50 merc with a split 3 pc back window..i think that movie was "father of the bride"

lots of fun sometimes looking for errors in the movies
james dean in movie rebel without a cause when he pushed the starter button on his 49 merc,,makes me smile,,the starter sounds the same today.60 years later

Years ago I was watching a Nancey Drew movie with my daughter. I believe that Bonita Granville played Nancey. She was driving a 37 Ford cabriolet but the interesting thing was that the spare tire was in the front fender like a model A.
