In recent times a new television channel in the UK, Talking Pictures TV, has been showing lots of generally British films from the 30s, 40s 50s and 60s. Unfortunately it doesn’t have web streaming or broadcast beyond the UK.
Last night it broadcast the film “Sleeping Tiger” that features a number of appearances including a high speed chase of a 1937 2½ litre SS Jaguar saloon.
All of our cars have their various advantages and disadvantages. The 1937 has beautiful proportions but is rather lacking in rear seat leg room and it also suffers from a nasty broken line in the leading edge of the front doors but this is nicely concealed in black cars as in this film.
Here are a few frames from the film. Unfortunately it doesn’t end well for EFC 164.
