In the 1934 movie "It Happened One Night" with Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, there is a scene where she is hitch hiking and she has a line " a gentleman in a Duesenberg picked me up". I don't think there is a car in the scene but could be wrong about that.

I was remiss and not really as observant as I should have been while watching the movie. Could that car have been J240? I don't THINK it had what Melvin Clemens referred to as all those "GD Bohman&amp;Schwartz modifications"like the extended hood and skirted front fenders but one thing is certain,if I get to see that movie again I will look closer. That movie was new the year I was born so the "J"was a fairly new car.
Wasn't another "J" sedan seen in a movie starring George Peppard called "The Carpetbaggers".I know a "J" was used in a movie starring Bob Hope about NYC Mayor Walker.

Bob, the Bob Hope movie featured a Murphy town car but I don't know which one.
