Spotted an Auburn in 1937 Mr Moto film was created by Tom_Parkinson
Hi,

Here I am, innocently lazing away a Sunday afternoon watching a 1937 film, "Think Fast, Mr Moto," and all of a sudden in the film here comes a big Auburn sedan. The car smashes into Mr Moto's rick-shaw, but our hero is unhurt.

I am not enough of an Auburn aficionado to state what model or year this Auburn is, but perhaps one of our Auburn owners can identify it.

I must say, the Auburn is the best part of this film. Reflecting the prejudices of the times, the Japanese detective is played by Czechoslovakian-born actor Peter Lorre. Lorre went on to make 7 more Mr Moto movies, and he later held them in disdain.

The film is not on Youtube. Perhaps someone with a Netflix subscription can obtain the movie and identify the Auburn.

PS--I am NOT going to tell you whodunit. You'll have to get the film and suffer through it as I did.

:D

Hello,

I am a big fan of Peter Lorre's acting!

His first great success in a movie was in (art director) Fritz Lang's 1931 Berlin based Thriller "M - Eine Stadt sucht einen M?rder" (M - A City in search of a Murder) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M_%281931_film%29

One of the best pre-war movies ever

Here is a link to the movie with subtitles in english langue http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihDwCKWdt0c


According to classic car history; Fritz Lang directed aswell the 1927 expressionism art inspired science fiction (silent) movie "Metropolis", during the final scene of the movie, a lot of the remaining (futuristic/aerodynamic designed) 1921 "Rumpler Tropfenwagen" (Drop car) were destroyed.

Only two of these cars are known today, both survived in technical museums in Berlin and Munich

Here are some links to car infos and fotos
