I noticed in the film footage of the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade the jeep pulling the float had a spare wheel mounted with no tire on it. Was this likely filmed during tire rationing? The film was released in 47 but the film of the actual parade could have been older.

I just googled it and it ended 12.31.45....so probably the bare rim spare was a result of the rationing.

You are likely correct. I am surprised it still had the spare rim. :)

When you have watched the movie 20 times you start to notice things on the edges of the picture. In that movie for example some of the overcoats and such appear to be of amazing quality.;)
