Default Model A's in the movies

What are good movies to see that feature our favorite car? Gangster movies? Other? I saw one last night that featured a computer animated sequence that was pretty well done as far as that scene. King Kong from 2005. The movie itself was not great, but the downtown New York scene with the Model A taxi cab was as good as any computer animated sequence as you could get. That being said, I would be interested in hearing about some of everyone's favorite real cars.

Happy Thanksgiving to all the US folks. My wife and I truly have a lot to be thankful for. Family, friends and of course "Minnie", our '29 Tudor. We went on a 50 mile drive today and had a great time.

It is not just 'movies' that you find model A fords in.
I am a WW11 history buff, specializing in the German-Russian front. I watch a lot of documentaries that use original vintage (1939-'46) film, shot from both the German and Russian military film crews. In it I almost always find a Russian AA Gaz truck or two. And even occasionally a Model A Phaeton.

Also a lot of Andy Hardy (Mickey Rooney) films used '31 Model A roadsters (both jalopies and stock) and too a 1930 4-door Phaeton. These movies were made in the '30's, so they fit right in and were 'age appropriate.

And too The Great Gadsby was a great showcase for the high-buck cars.

They ran an "oldie but goodie" on television titled, "The FBI Story". It starred James Stewart and Vera Miles (released in 1959). I did catch myself watching the vehicles as much as the actors. I ponder the technical challenges film makers have with era pieces when it comes to transportation.
