You should mention that it is from 1946
Very cool...thanks for posting it. I presume they were filming with very bright lights off the back of the vehicle...I am sure today you would get pulled over so fast it would make your head spin.
Barely even turned heads back then.
These are background process shots for interior car scenes of the period; and because Rita Hayworth’s GILDA is seen on one marquee, I’ll lay bets this was a Columbia Pictures special effects or 2nd Unit camera crew.
Could have slowed the film speed to match the music for a better result.
Wow, very nice.
...and in that year, 1946, Tommy’s was born!
Cops in cars and topless bars
I’ve never seen a woman so alone
That was awesome! thanks for the link.
A sweeter, gentler time. I was around then to experience it. We were a more homogeneous society back then...if you get my drift.
I liked the pink jalopy.
Also, “Mayflower Donuts” in 1946? Somebody made a big deal out of a recent Dunkin’ Donuts story that the 1950 chain popularized that spelling of “doughnut”. I guess it was around before that.
Also, if this is LA, what is the stuff that looks like snow in some of the gutters? Garbage?
Nice, very nice. Smooth.
My Mom lived just a few blocks up from that main drag when that was filmed. She would have been 13 yeats old at the time. She went to Hollywood HS with classmate Carol Burnett. We lost her three months ago and I sure do miss her.
That video demonstrates why the US is so powerful today. On the day that was filmed, pretty much every other major city outside the US was rubble, or at least pretty seriously damaged.
Well, there’s canada and Australia.
