    Years ago I remember reading in Old Cars Weekly about a movie wherein many bulletnose Studes were wrecked. I think they used them as police cars. This would have been the late 70s or 80s. This bothered me the same way I hate to see monster trucks chewing up cars that will be of interest to enthusiasts a few years after they are merely used cars, but when this movie was made the Studebakers were already recognized and collected.

    I know it is not much info to go on, but does anyone know that movie.


    Thanks for any info,
    Justin
    STREETS OF FIRE....... supposedly shot in Chicago. Exterior shots were shot on the CTA, but the Elevated RR Structures and car crashes were done in LA.

      One of the "Batman" movies featured bullet-noses as Gotham police cars. The movie about the Tucker used at least one bullet-nose in a crash scene.[www.bondobilly.com/gotham23.jpg]

      " how far is Gotham from here?

      • In the very first scene of the new film about George Reeves Hollywoodland, there is a Lark police car parked in the driveway. Later in there is a blue 50-51-52 (I couldn't see the nose) Starliner coupe...with the black gravel guards.

          • What[?] No one has mentioned neighbor Wilson on Home Improvement working on his two tone blue '54(?) coupe[?][?]

            I also remember a single episode of Hart to Hart TV show with Robert Wagner and Stephanie Powers. They get stuck in Mexico and their only way to "escape" is in a Bulletnose. Probably now available on DVD, but a lot of watching to find it. But it was a major part of the episode.

            Wasn't there a scene in Peggy Sue got Married where a Stude zooms by?

                • Caught a glimpse of a nice green '49 or '50 Studebaker pick-up in "The Spanish Prisoner" on the Indieplex channel last night. Steve Martin and the main character were walking past an open garage housing the good look baby.

                  • I love resurrecting this topic..

                    In the new film Flags of our Fathers there is a red bulletnose and towards the end (in a scene set in the mid-60s) a real nice shot of black Lark.

                    • In the 2006 film, "Infamous" (Truman Capote), just released in October, there may possibly be a '50 green bullet nose in a rural scene. This scene was filmed just west of us (Atchison Kansas) and the owner of the car is a friend. He contacted by the Kansas Film Commission to be in the movie. Most states have a film commission and need cars for films. The majority of the film was produced in Austin Texas. It is very possible that the scene never made it to the movie. I have not seen the movie as it is only available in major cities......Brad

                        • In the movie "Infamous" (2006) there is a 1957 Hawk and a 1958 sedan according to the Heart of America SDC newsletter. The 1950 Bullet Nose filmed here in Atchison Ks didn't make it to the movie. It looks like those 2 cars may be from Texas. Any Texans out there ???....Brad

                          • There is a green hawk used in a lot of the Crime Story series on TV several years back. Reruns have been showing up recently.

                              • A 1966 Studebaker Lark-type is seen in a few scenes in ANGEL IN MY POCKET (1968) starring Andy Griffith, Edgar Buchanan, Henry Jones and a host of other 1960s-era and before character actors. It's a fun movie about a new minister coming into a town dominated by two fighting families. The film is interesting to car buffs as the minister drives a well-worn 1956 Nash.
