I know this has come up here before but I am amazed at the number of T containing films in this database now.
Happened to watch "Fast and Furious" today on AMC about a guy racing a '55 Jag in Califunny back when... There was another race going on at the park that was all brass era speedsters... pretty interesting... ws
As I recall it, the Young Indiana Jones drew lots of derisive laughter from T guys because the director and actors knew nothing about driving a T.
You've rekindled a "Young Indiana Jones" memory episode where Edison's battery plans were stolen..... and the culprit jammed his foot on the brake pedal to go faster...... whee !
Hollywood SOP ? seems so .
How about "O Brother where art thou" with the kid driving the T with a wood block wired onto the bottom of his shoe. REALISM! ws
Here's an IMDB connection for Ts with Beaudette bodies:
Cobina Wright, Jr., married Palmer Beaudette in 1941. I used to swap emails with her, and still with two of her children. Palmer was the grandson of OJ Beaudette. After she died, I made a connection of her as actress because of a playbill that was featured on PBS Histories' Mysteries. Cobina Wright, Sr. put on a grand party at the Waldorf Astoria in 1933, promising the presence of Pres. Roosevelt. Cobina is a unique name. I met Cobina III after an HCCA tour in Solvang, and and gave her and her daughter a ride in the ol' brass picup. Other T people have met her since, as she seeks out Beaudette bodied cars.
Here's a Beaudette bodied car being wrecked in a blackface clown routine in the 1943 movie Stormy Weather. It's about 2mins into the clip.
Just aired on BBC in the UK is series Peaky Blinders, about Birmingham street gangs in 1919. The central character drives a Manchester RHD tourer. Worth catching, I'm sure it'll turn up on US tv - you might need subtitles ;^)
