It was in an old ACD NewsLetter maybe in the late 1980's or early 90's. I have never seen the movie called "Midnight". I did see J198 at Auburn years ago restores as a speedster and it looked good.

Hello Bob,

yes there exists a photo (made on a movie-set) of J-198 (with a CC-Body) "kissing" a tree. On that photo stands the actress Clair Trevor beside the car, but I don't know for what movie that photo was taken.

you will find the pic on the pages 70/71 in the book "automobile quarterly, Vol. 30, No. 4, summer 1992


Cheers

I have seen the picture with the "Schauspielern"Trevor but that was minor damage. The picture I saw was a heavily damaged car and the caption as I recall said the driver was in very bad condition.

Hello Bob,

do you remember what the name of that movie with the "Clair-Trevor-Duesenberg-Accident-Scene" was?

Matt,
No,I don't remember the name of that movie. I think I tuned into it on our old movie channel but didn't get to watch all of it. Anyway,it was a long time ago.
