  • Studebakers in the upcoming Mandela movie

    Yesterday we went to see the movie "The Butler". Before it started they ran a trailer for the Mandela movie opening in November. I was surprised to see several Studebakers. At about 1:33 in the video there are four, a finned Hawk, two Larks that appear to be '61s and a white '64 sedan which appears to be a Commander. It appears closer up at about 1:40. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXQsOwBIJ2Y

      Very cool indeed. Movie was filmed in S Africa. The light blue Lark is definitely right hand drive.
      However! It's only 3 Studes in one scene. The Grey car is NOT a Studebaker.
      However, It's 3! Studes in a movie scene!

      I know I've seen a few posts from S Africa. Maybe they'll revisit the forum.

      I'll update the Studes in movie Thread.

          I should have captured that scene and blown it up. To my feeble eyes it looked like a '61 Lark, but at 3x it clearly is not. Thanks for the correction. In looking more closely it appears that the '64 is also right-hand drive
          I was aware of the "Studies in Movies" thread, but thought this was somewhat different. If a moderator wants to move it to the old thread I have no objection.

                The Cruiser name was never popular in South Africa. But the Datytona name was, so it was used on top line 1964 models.

                  Apparently Studes were actually used as police vehicles in RSA 50 years ago.

                      Israel had a few Police vehicles whilst Australia had 350 Police cars, both 2 & 4 door door models between 1961 & 1965.
