  • 53K wreck in movie

    Coming on TCM right now (11:15 PDT) is the Japanese language movie "The Bad Sleep Well". In one scene a 53 K is supposedly hit by a train. The badly wrecked car is shown, but not the actual occurrence.

        Wow....been too long since I saw that movie last and I must not have seen the entire movie then. The wreck is actually a C-body '53. There is a '53 Champion C-body car shown being driven in much of the film, but I'm not so sure it is the same car as the wreck.

          Movie makers figure the viewers are not observant. Or maybe it just looks good to the director.

          In "The attack of the 50 foot woman" the hero is driving a 57 Plymouth wagon. When she picks it up, it's a 54 Chevrolet wagon. When she throws it down, it's a wrecked 57 Plymouth wagon.

          In the movie "Killers Three" with Dick Clark, the bad guys' car goes back and forth between a 39 and 40 Chevrolet and a two door and a four door. Both cars were white, so who would notice?
