    Cortinas in movies

    Anybody seen a movie with a cortina featured in it ( new or old movie ).

    I'm not talking about one parked on the side of the road as a camera pans past ( like the widebody starions in Seinfelt ) but acturally in it, like driving scenes and so on.

    Hi

    Yes, Micheal Caine drives a mk 2 in Get Carter. a blue mink base model if i remember right. Uk TV series Life on Mars ( Cop show) a MK3 Cortina 2000E in roman bronze. Also again Uk TV 70's cop Show The Sweeney lots of cortina's in there. And for all you
    fans of the movie Christine, there is a MK2 Lotus Cortina in there near the end. It get s T boned in Darnells Shed by Christine.

    Ha ha a mk2 in christene! youve done a bit of research capt. or a great memory

    The reason I asked is cause there is a movie currently being filmed about gocarting and it has a few different cars int one being a mk1 lotus preairflow cortina. Now the reason I know this is cause its my car they are using.

    Not sure of the name though "hopes and dreams" sounds like a made for tv film!!

    I think there is a Mk1 Estate used for a bit in Blood Diamond

    I actually think there is a website or at least a website page dedicated to this topic somewhere. I'll try to dig it up...

    Some not so well known Mk 1 appearances:

    One of the first cars rammed In the chase scene of Gone in 60 secs (The original not the horseshit remake) is a Mk 1 cortina

    A Mk 1 is seen in the background in the Frank Sinatra film "Tony Rome"

    A chopped up, pink, Mk 1 is used by Punks to get around in American Ninja 4 (HORRIBLE FILM!!!!!) Included a screenshot to avoid you the misery of having to watch this drivel!


    Vincent Price goes looking for a new car so he can kill zombies in "Last man on earth" and ends up in an english ford display room...very cool!

    No way a movie with that name could be horrible!

    Have to look up this 'Last man on Earth' zombie flick though. Sounds good.

    There's a MkII involved in the mass-crash scene in Jaques Tati's comedy "Trafic" as well. There you can also see how a Citroen DS collides with suitable dignity...

    The movie is full of 60s classics and also features the Bruxelles motor show.
