I don't see my Appia Coupe' mentioned even though it was featured in the film "Skin" shot on lacation in the Magaliesberg in South Africa about 2 years ago.

The film stars Alice Krige and Sam Neil, directed by Anthony Fabian - see http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0964586/

Has anyone seen the film?  I'd love to get a copy, but it wasn't released in South Africa.  ???

One not listed on the website mentioned above... Just been sat watching FRANTIC, a thriller with Harrison Ford.  A Fulvia is parked up outside the hotel as Harrison Ford pops across to the florist and bar.. seen in three shots.  Get's prime screen time :)  Roman Polanski must've liked the Lancia :)

Lima,

Thanks for reviving this thread, which I seem not to have noticed when it started back in April. I must look out for 'Frantic'.

One to add: the last Monsieur Hulot film from Jacques Tati was ‘Trafic’ from 1971 – one sequence includes a massive traffic jam with a shot lingering on a Fulvia Sport.

Colin, thanks for the nudge: i can't add to the Lancia memories, but Jacques Tati's "Mon Oncle" and "Jour de Fete" ( the postman trying to get on his bike :) )rank up there with the Marx brothers for me. Absolute genius.

If we want to keep this data in some way, the geocities site is closing on 26 October 2009 (next week!), so if someone has the technical know how to get this, now would be a good time!

I've saved it. 

If anyone else wants to for "private study" or whatever the copyright position might be in Internet Explorer I have a "Page" menu towards the top right and I went "Save As" with the option "Webpage Complete".   This created a 2MB directory of all the stuff.   In the directory you made go to the "index_files" subdirectory, within that go to the "index_files" subdirectory, and then right-mouse-button-click on "films.htm" and "Open With" then "Word pad".   Highlight from the start of the line that starts <SCRIPT>  all the way down the dozen or so lines to </SCRIPT> and hit delete, then save.   Quit the editor, double click on "films.htm" and you have it.

Shown on BBC4 in the art house season of films was Romanzo Criminale, which started off with the main characters joy riding in a Flaminia and following through with various models upto and early Delta as the film was depicted Italy from the late 50's through to the early 80's.

Why I watched the film as it had subtitles, I don't know but probalbly trying to spot the many Lanica's through the ages.

Did a Google search and found a couple of trailers for the film, with a couple of Lancia being shown. The search via IMDB does not give too much detail.

Have you tried Iplayer, or watch out for a rerun, should not be too long away on BBC4!

Surfing the net for anything Dilambda related and came across a mention that a Dilambda appears in The Yellow Rolls Royce. Purchased a copy on Ebay and sure enough there it was!  :o

The 1964 film tells the travels and travails of a Yellow Rolls Royce through three ownerships. The second is an American gangster (George C Scott) who is being encouraged by the salesman to take the Dilambda making mention of its Mussolini connections. His moll however (Shirley MacLaine) favours the Rolls and he buys that instead. Poor choice in my view!

Not a scintillating 2 hour watch despite a stellar cast, although the Rolls is very easy on the eye and of course in almost the same colour scheme as Modestine. It could easily be a Carlton body too.

Is this the one with Rex Harrison, Moira Lister, and Peter Ustinov, to name but a few, ???  the last time I saw this I wasn't into Lancia's, so the Dilambda didn't register :o and for the life of me I can't remember George C Scott or Shirley McLaine being in it either.

British Pathe have put their archive film onto http://www.britishpathe.com/index.php and you can happily waste several evening digging.  But if you get excited watching a couple of policmen sitting in a Flaminia in the rain, President Gronchi arriving to open the 1956 Turin Show in what looks like a Stabilimenti Farina Astura, a Fulvia and a Flavia in the 1966 Monte Carlo Rally and so on....... just put 'lancia' into the search box.

Just been doing my night owl bit and watched a film on BBC 2, 1200- 1.40am, called "Massacre in Rome" with Richard Burton, Leo McKinstry and Anthony Steel, all playing German Officers.
Based on a true story (that I've Read recently), in March 1945 the Partisans in Rome killed 33 Germans with a Bomb, and the Germans shot 330 Italians as a reprisal.
 Spotted twice driving past, was an Augusta with wartime style white paint all along the mudguards.

       If you are into Italy and Romance with the [b]nuova Delta[/b] in a major role then take a look at 'Letters to Juliet' starring Amanda Seyfried and Vanessa Redgrave. A fluffy modern romance but seeing the Delta being driven around the countryside near Sienna made it worthwhile. Beats the other star, a Fiat 500, easily! On Sky Box Office at present and I believe on DVD already, it only came out in May.

"Angels and Demons", the recent-ish film based on another book by Dan Brown (wash mouth out with soap and water!), has a nuova Delta appear a fair amount. It's a Rome Police Officer's car.

I am not a big film fan, but I watched "Angels and Demons" simply because it has a nuova Delta in it.  I thought that the film was really rather good!

Yes I thought the PF came out of it quite well, very spectacular how the DS's bolt on panels detached themselves.

Mind, if that had been in the UK the b--- -y police would have shut the road for 3 days for investigations, as appears to be their wont after every accident these days, always admired the French for the way they do a quick look around and then push everything to the side and let the traffic flow, with hardly a cone or barrier in sight, while they sort out the details.

It's been a while since anyone has posted on here and it just so happens that I can now add to it.

The Consequences Of Love (Le conseguenze dell'amore) is worth a watch in its own right.
Admittedly it's slowly paced, but the sound-track is good and there's a Gamma to be seen!
And yes it's Italian with English sub-titles.

On one of the documentary channels there was a programme last night that follows an American classic car dealer - 'Chasing Classic cars' In last night's programme he was getting an Aurelia ready for auction and part 2 (sorry don't know when its on) will be at the auction. Fine looking car that needed some work to the engine. The mechanic - who admitted he had never worked on a Lancia before - soon had that out though and with a twirl of his socket set had it sorted and back in! Quite thought provoking!! I think the phrase is 'buyer beware!'

A British film of 1959, "Hidden Homicide" includes footage of an English bodied Astura being used by the baddies in a car chase through the streets of suburban London. I have tried to find clips but so far without success. No doubt due to my incompetence using t`ìnternet

There is a rather good chase involving a Bentley and a Lambda in the 1968 Hammer film The Devil Rides Out. You can see it at the beginning of part 4 on the YouTube clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28d2RcbJ48w&NR=1
The sequence in fact begins at the end of part 3, and if you persist a little further into part 4 you will see what was then John Maltby's Lambda (now Tony Stephens') among the assembled cars.
Maltby's car appeared again in Camp on Blood Island where it was apparently destroyed by a grenade (Tony will probably find the dents under the back seat) but clips of that film don't appear to be available.

Re Camp on blood island, I think the Lambda belonged to my dad at the time, as i remember him telling me something about they paid for a new windscreen to replace the one  that was cracked in the filming.BCO was the second car that i travelled in as a sprogg :)

ER5421 belonged to a Mr A Livingstone, from Ealing, London, circa 2000, but I think it has since been exported from the U.K.


Title: Re: LANCIAS ON FILM
Post by: johnturner on 04 November, 2011, 11:59:54 AM
As Ade says, ER 5421 is now in Italy.  It was pretty tired when Arnold Livingstone had it and even tireder after The Devil Rides Out, but it had a distinguished history.  It was built up by Alec Park who was a partner of Terry Breen in his car breaking and dealing business in North London, using a fifth shell with the scuttle extended, the rear suspension lowered and an eight series engine fitted.  Here is a picture of the car with a proud Alec taken, judging by the cowled lamp, sometime during the war.  The car was later owned by Wells Coates and here is the famous picture of him with the car that appeared in Vogue.

I don't think it's been mentioned before but one of the best sequences of a Lancia in film is in Il Sorpasso, a Dino Risi film from 1962 in which a B24 Convertible has a large part.  It can be got from Amazon for about £10, or the opening credits and splendid last sequence can be found on YouTube at http://youtu.be/q0rePVClZHc and http://youtu.be/xhu_uM9mk_o
The car that disappears over the cliff is apparently an Alfa, heavily disguised. The B24 has recently been restored, see http://video.repubblica.it/edizione/bologna/l-auto-del-sorpasso-restaurata-a-lizzano/82857/81247

On sunday I was watching Great Escapes of the War on 'Yesterday', the programme was about the Long Range Desert Group who upset the Italians in Libya by knocking seven bells out of their Areodromes and other facilities, eventually this leads to a chase of the LRDG by the Italian Army some in Lancia Lorries RO's? that seemed to have the Lancia Badge on the Radiator, which wasn't always the case according to "Camion Lancia".
As everything is always repeated on yesterday it would be worth looking out for even if they only for about a minute.

Not a car but a book written by a Lancia owner. Does that count I wonder? ???

Young James Herriot BBC 1 this evening. Herriot is given a book to give him an insight into the 1st World War - All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Remarque. With revenue generated by sales of this best seller Remarque fulfilled a long held desire to own a Dilambda. Obviously a man of impeccable taste! ::)

Channel 4 on 10th Dec showed Woody Allen's 2008 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona' starring Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson with Javier Bardem as the seductive painter. Set in contemporary Barcelona the usual Citroen taxis abound but a cameo appearance of a Lancia Musa caught me by surprise, it must have been on the screen for no more than 3 seconds. Now, that did wake me up!
Just to confirm here is the scene.

'Madness in the Desert' Paris to Dakar was a fascinating BBC 4 documentary I watched last Sunday. It traced the history of the rally from its inception in 1977 to 2008 when it was bought to an end in Africa by terrorism. Ari Vatanan won in 1987 in a modified Peugeot 205 T16 which in the previous year had been banned as a Group B rally car in the WRC. Link to a surprise shot of a Delta S4 and another of Marku Alen in 1986 as they covered the ban. I wonder if Lancia ever thought of entering their then redundant S4's?? Have any Lancia's ever been entered in the Paris Dakar?
You can catch it again on the BBC website this week but it is to be repeated on BBC4 Monday 4 March.

Sky Arts 1 is showing a 12-part series called 'Corleone', with English subtitles. Some great footage of a Lusso Aprilia, as well as an Appia Camioncino. Lots of Fiats, too. Runs on Friday night at 10am, but check your region in case of change.

An Aurelia berlina, not a B12 as indicated, but fun nonetheless! Good for your italian too!

Strange position of the steering wheel sometimes, and those wipers do not quite fit the car.

I may be wrong but I'm fairly sure I saw a Silver ? Flaminia PF parked up in Paris.

The Flavia sequence in the film Rush is a big grin moment!! Also think I saw the nose of a Flaminia parked at one of the scenes at the pits.

Thought the film a good watch but the lung hoovering almost made me throw up. I am a bit squeamish bit it was so real you were with Lauda the whole way through....probably the most horrible thing I have seen on film and definitely not entertainment!!!

I was 13!!!!

Some things have changed so much whilst others not so. 8mph in the centre of many large towns at certain times of the day is still a totally unrealisable dream !!!!

Look at the construction sites, not a hard hat, steel toe cap boot or a fluorescent jacket in sight.

As for design standards on the motorway itself, no central reserve barrier, no impact protection for bridge piers or abutments. The hard shoulders are of minimum construction and not a piece of armco to help prevent errant vehicles from careering down embankments ......... all of this and no speed restriction!!! Oh, and of course 'one for the road' was simply the done thing!!!

Freer times, but not, I think, the good old days!!

I remember seeing a bad accident on the M1 between the A5 at Friars Wash J9, and the Hemel Hempstead turn J8, when a large lorry travelling south crossed the centre reservation and plowed into the north bound traffic, horrific accident and it wasn't so long after this they started adding the barrier to the central reservation, not before time!

That film was much enjoyed.  Reminds me of Thunderbirds and Eagle comic cutaways.  I got drawn in by the link to this one as well:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgOxglry8Dw&sns=em

Bridges get protection and the hard shoulder colour coded but no central barrier.  Its interesting to see how little has changed since that time.  They did a pretty good job getting us from the Victorian era to something that has lasted my lifetime with every indication it will see me out.

Its easy to say "what happened to that spirit" but Crossrail is a very impressive project and the Olympic Park and its transport systems went up at a stunning pace.   The main London stations are now being transformed in a similar way to the "grand schemes" for Hyde Park Corner and Marble Arch.

Title: Re: LANCIAS ON FILM

The spirit is still there David, in the sixties and seventies we led the world in suspension bridge design, just as we did when Isambard and his like ruled the engineering world The first Severn crossing and the Humber bridge were great engineering feats even if the latter was very poor value for money in transportation terms and was a purely political venture!!!

More recently it has been UK architects that have hit the headlines although when it comes to the tricky bits they then turn to the engineers!!!!!! That view is only a lot biased!!!

Perhaps one reason that we may have a relatively reduced presence on the world stage in  the field of large scale construction projects is that we live in a relatively small country and once led the world and thus most of our construction needs and requirements have already been met. People ask why we don't have sea and river defences of similar capability to those of the Dutch ....... one very good reason is that in the UK the great majority of our urbanised areas and farmland is above flood level, in Holland it is the opposite. So, they face a far greater risk from flooding and consequently have far superior flood defences!!

Most construction expenditure is needs driven, many of our needs have been met.

If you are a Sky subscriber then do catch the 'Rally de Monte Carlo Historique 2014' on Motors TV a repeat of which goes out at 6.25am tomorrow, Friday 7/3. Some great shots of Fulvia's and also a Stratos. The retro clips also featured Jean Claude Andruet in the Martini 037 from 1983 (or maybe '84?).

Motors TV 'Auto Mundial' is a weekly global review of the Automotive Industry, worth catching as it can be very informative. Fiat/Chrysler occasionally gets a mention but in episode 8 of the current series they featured the Lancia Delta HF in their 'Classic Tweet' of just over 2 minutes. Shown on a stand at a show was a German registered model 'K HF 83' minus a badge!

BBC 2 last Weds night 7/1, Supercars v Used Cars showed a job swap for 2 car salesman, one from London and the other from Bridgend. Joe Macari's showroom in SW London showed glorious Maserati's, Ferrari's and Lambo's so on the lookout for a Lancia obviously. Sure enough in the background outside the showroom and on the forecourt was a Maroon HF Integrale M35 DOY. Filmed last year sometime I wonder if it was sold to a club member? His current website shows the rare Delta S4 for sale at £240k if you're interested. Nothing spotted at the Bridgend garage!

Only just got round to watching "Rush" , really enjoyed it, some excellent sequences and some gory bits.

A really good scene with a 2000 being driven by Niki Lauda whilst impressing "the girl". But the continuity-editor in me says that you cannot change gear that quickly in a 2000  (slightly stubborn 'box), even if you are Niki Lauda .... but they do handle as well shown !

Not perfect but recommend !

Ah yes a 2000 not a Flavia...... Although it has Flavia underpinnings.... And who knows if that box hadn't been fettled just for film... My 5 speeder in my (Fulvia) sport which is 180,000 miles young is surprisingly fast compared to all the other (Fulvia) 5 speeders I have driven.

I was taken by the thought that the gear stick in the film 2000 cameo was longer that in real life????

I have got my copy now which comprises 2 CDs. 2 DVDs and a large book and the is an Aurelia B20 featured in the footage shown whilst 'Girl in a Sportscar' is playing on DVD1. There might be more Lancias on Film  - I have only watched selected bits so far.
Of course most of the car footage is Ferrari of the early 60's but nevertheless it is all very atmospherice together with Chris' music.

In message 43 of the thread LANCIAS ON FILM the late John Turner suggested that the 5th/8th modified torpedo of Wells Coates, the famous architect subsequently owned by Arnold Livingstone, was BY 2011 in Italy. This is one of the ten or so Lambdas that we believe in the Lambda Consortium and the Lambda World Register has probably survived but has been lost sight of. We have no information on its VIN number. If any reader has information about its whereabouts - even the continent it is in - or its VIN, that would be of interest.

My sister put me onto a Freeview channel called 'Talking Pictures'. I'm addicted to it now - they show all the old British films from the 50's and 60's and the street scenes and cars are superb - especially when set around the London Docks where I grew up. So I found myself watching Tito Gobbi in 'The Glass Mountain' a few months back (as you do) and towards the end a Lambda winds its way up a mountain road. I'm not a Lambda expert so can't tell you which series etc but I believe it was a closed saloon. A few weeks ago watched an old comedy called 'To Paris With Love' and towards the end of that an Aurelia is parked up next to Terry-Thomas' car. If you love old British stuff, like the old 'Scotland Yard' series etc this is the channel to wallow in.

I just watched "The Scarlet and the Black" about the Vatican underground in WW2. The lead character, Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty played by Gregory Peck, has a couple of scenes where he uses a car which looked to me to be an Augusta. It's an excellent film so well worth the wait for a brief Lancia sighting.

That's interesting. I didn't notice a scene with the full car in shot. I can't have been paying attention properly.

BBC 2 drama 'Trust' now on catch up.

This is the tale of the Getty family and the true life kidnapping of John Paul Getty Jnr in 1973. I had a vague recolection of this so watched it. It wasn't until the half way through that the kidnapping took place, in Italy. Now I was interested but it was all Fiats and Alfa's for a couple of episodes. Then the class came when a Fulvia Berlina was used for an action shot along with a Flavia coupe. Then came in the background a Fulva coupe and also, I think a Flamminia Belina.


Worth a view but I warn you it is a bit gory in places.

Also quite a few on the BBC Trust series on the kidnapping of Paul Getty.
At least two Flavias and a Fulvia Berlina..

BBC 1 Little Drummer Girl now on catch up/iplayer


Classic le Carre spy tale set in the late 1970's in Europe and about an Israeli / Palestinian undercover operation. A Mercedes W123 takes centre stage on the car front but to my surprise a Fulvia Berlinetta S2 plays a small characterful part as the shadow car through Austria in episode 3. If you get to episode 4 you get a shot of a Red Beta coupe in the background.


Keep your eyes peeled!
