Divorce American Style, 1967 era. About 1 1/2 hrs into the movie, van johnson, a carsalesman is making a pitch on tv, and in the background, on the right is a blue early of some sort. Movie on TCM last night.

"Fear" 1996 Mark Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon. I'm a Comcast employee and I have to go through all channels twice a day, and as I hit one movie channel, I see what looks like a Corvair.. it was a LM Monza convertible pulling up to watch the submarine races somewhere... nice looking vert. Reese says "Isn't this one of those cars they quit making cause they blow up or something?" Classic.

Bedtime Stories, at the top of the movie there is an LM vert in a flashback scene. Pretty spiffy.

Last night on "Here's Your Sign" there was a monster truck stuck on an early model.

You guys forgot about the movie: Mr Holland's Opus with Richard Drefus. An early model convertible was the star throughout the movie. The French Connection also has Corvair shown briefly in the chase scene.

"A History Of Violence". When Tom Stall (Vigo) walks into the street there's a LM coupe parked across the street.

I just saw that "Bedtime Stories" too and it was great. Opening scene starts out with a very nice LM vert prominently in the center of the picture and close up for sometime. NICE.

Mr Hollands Opus. I think it was a 64 coupe. Sounds were from a 65 coupe with an Isky OT-20 cam that NEVER DID SHUT UP. That damn thing made valve noise until I pulled it out (cam is now being held hostage by R. Sedman, hopefully it will never go in another car). If you listen carefully I think you can hear the damn thing tick as he revs it in the garage.

I believe Forrest Gump also had an early convertible (when he punched out the guy trying to make time with Jenny).

Not a movie, but Katy Perry music video "Hot and Cold" LM black Corvair convertible featured, she's dancing on the back seat partway through.

I was watching a "Monk" marithon last night and in the 2004 episode "Monk and the 3 pies" there was a EM light blue metalic convertible featured during the first 5 minutes of the show. Just an FYI for those who care.

not a movie sighting, but on television: LM vairs were featured quite often in the earlier episodes of "Bewitched", often as the lead character's only car.

there was one extended viewing of the interior of a LM convertible, with darren and samantha inside caught in a rain storm with an empty tank of gasonline.


ah yes, the retentiveness of a teenage car crazy's mind... spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Hehe, I think I cheated.

I watched Forrest Gump the other day and don't remember seeing a Corvair. Hmmm...gives me a reason to watch it again, well, other than the fact that its just a good movie.

I don't know how you missed it. Forest yanked the guy out of the EM convertible and beat the crap out of him.
