Douglas Vespa 150 in Movies
Two for the Road
2* pour cet autre oublié: le Scooter de David (Georges Descrières) qui a un RV avec Joanna Wallace (Audrey Hepburn) Non, pas oublié. Volontairement ignoré car à l'époque où j'ai traité ce film on ne mettait pas les deux roues en ligne. Ni les arrière-plan sans intérêt, d'ailleurs. Alors Piaggio Vespa. Lequel? The red car on the left is a 60`s Triumph Herald convertable, the car on the right looks like a Jaguar Mk10 I think the car on the right is a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud I or II. I think it's this one: /vehicle_12587-Bentley-S1-1955.html The long shot shows that it's obviously a Bentley - but it's slightly unusual. Two tone Silver Clouds usually had bonnets painted with the upper colour while S1 and S2 Bentleys usually had bonnets painted the lower colour. Which is why I guessed Silver Cloud without being able to see the radiator. It's not possible to distinguish between a Silver Cloud I and II from the side. I imagine the same is true of the S1 and S2? Bentley faisait des scooters? Selle Connolly, alors...
The scooter is a Vespa 150.. could be a VBB
