A blog about automobile styling. The emphasis is on history, but the appearance of current production and concept cars will be evaluated as well.

Phantom Corsair as Movie Star
Time for another change of pace. I wrote about ketchup heir Rust Heinz's Cord-based Phantom Corsairhere. In that post I noted that the car played the role of the Flying Wombat brand in the 1938 comedy movie "Young in Heart".
I found a few marginal-quality outtake images from the film on the Web and thought it might be amusing to post them.
This seems to be a publicity photo including the Flying Wombat, Paulette Goddard and Douglas Fairbanks Jr.
View of the Flying Wombat showroom. It's a matte shot, most of the background being painted. The cars are either painted or altered photos.
These showroom scenes include a diagram view of the car in the background.
