Default American Stars & their Cars

A good Actor friend of mine forwarded me these remarkable photos of some of Hollywood's great Stars with their cars. A remarkable collection of photos.
Unfortunately the model and year are not included.

For those who have the Turner Classic Movie channel, i'm sure you will see some of these famous Actors.

1. Paulette Goddard getting into her husband's, Charlie Chaplin, RR Phantom 2
2. Fatty Arbuckle & his 1919 Pierce Arrow.
3. Erick Von Stroheim's Cadillac.
4. Harold Llloyd & wife Mildred Davis & their Buick.
5. Lincon Perry and his Cadillac Phaeton.

Lots more to come

Now we should get photos of Indian stars of yesteryear and their cars.
The Hollywood stars had such fantastic cars, and the cars are still known by their names, like Cark Gable Duesenberg, etc.

Harit,
I had forwarded the email to some car buffs a few days back. I thought of you, but not having your email hoped some BHP members would forward them to you as I figped you could add some additional info on the year and model.

Also thought it would be a good new thered for Indian Movie Stars with their Cars, but being a part timer here, didn't have the knowledge.

Would be a good thread for you to start up!

23. Joan Crawford & her 1933 Ford "Roadster"
24. James Stewart & his Plymouth.

Here's my all time favourite of the 30's, the 1934 Ford Model 40 Special Speedster that was designed by and built for Edsel Ford's personal use. While he might not have been a "Movie Star" he certainly helped their Stars Shine!

Roscoe "fatty" Arbuckle was the first actor to earn more than a million dollars a year. he also owned a Mc Farlen

Here's a great shot of one of my favourite actor, Gary Grant and a early 1950s British Isetta similar to one that I had at University. What a great Car.

I took this from Anjan c2007 post, thanks!
