    • UGH:

      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

The name of the film is "Laughter in Paradise: staring among others Alastair Sim ( Scrooge in an old " Christmas Carol"). The premise was to inherit a bunch of money the heirs has to do all sorts of things and at the end, the joke was on them. The women is a damsel in distress who as it turns out is the daughter of the butler that was let in on the plot. She used the Studebaker to trap one of the heirs.

                    I wonder if that car would be indentifiable from the build sheet itself. I bet they didn't ship all that many '50 Commander convertibles to England!!
