now if it wasn't a Citroen, then the Opel Olympia "Stabswagen" (cabriolet) could well be a candidate, doors hinged the right way, straight edge to the front of the doors, and triangular "fin" detail on the wing. This is a nice example worth a view even if it proves to be off the mark.

"From Russia with love" got an airing at the weekend as did the "Sound of Music". The Traction Avant appears in both.

U guys should check out IMcDB.org. It's a movie car database. Lots and lots of Citroen to be found , but might spoil the fun.

In the new Transporter series a Renault van gets airbourne by being assisted into a marina/quay by the Transporters Audi before the van explodes under water.

I spy with my French Car eye a Green Xantia Estate N407 TPK and a Green Renault Megane Y298 RVS seen in "The Holiday" which had Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet in it. 8-)

A red Peugeot 309 was seen on London's Burning when they left a basketball match, and the side of the car could be seen.

I can't find any mention of it in the thread, so the 1959 Peugeot 403 Cabriolet from Columbo - and in true Columbo style:
"Oh, and just one more thing"
as these episodes were titled the 'Mystery Movie' - I guess it qualifies!

Not a film exactly but an advert.


Don't see adverts, haven't had the TV on this year yet but it was mentioned in the comments for this:


A pair of delightful Swedish sisters.
