Not a film, as such, but a recent TV program on Roy Orbison (something about his 'legacy') included home movies; his house/cars showed one or two C3s parked in the yard.
J.C. (1911)

There are a few with the 'vette in, both movies and tv shows...from the top of my head...

TV Shows -
A-Team: Face's C4
Lucifer: Black C1 Convertible
Films -
The Last Mile: C6 ZR1
Transformers: Stingray Concept & C7 (can't remember which ones were in which film...)
Fast & Furious (think No. 2): C5

Cleopatra Jones..

Modified C3. Some excellent footage of a C3 being actually driven in anger for once. The V8 soundtrack is partially from Bullitt, so its all good!

The Magician TV series in the '70s staring Bill Bixby was the first time I saw anything with a Corvette in it.

Re: Films with Corvettes in?


One of my favorites from years ago is the Jan & Dean story - Dead Mans Curve.
Based on a true story.
They were similar to the Beach Boy's and Jan Berry nearly died in a bad C2 (big block) crash. From memory the film shows a couple of C2's
Used to have it on video but its no longer available.

He is the link to it on Utube - but its a really bad copy (worth watching if you have the time and nothing better to do.

Yes it was a sad story. I think he crashed under the tail end of a truck or something and got very bad brain damage.
I used to have a tape of the film I recorded off TV years ago but no idea where that is.
I have their Greatest Hits LP in my collection. I'm not allowed to play it through because the wife "hates that shit". LOL

From Wiki;

"On April 12, 1966, Berry received severe head injuries in an automobile accident on Whittier Drive, just a short distance from Dead Man's Curve in Beverly Hills, California, two years after the song had become a hit. He was on his way to a business meeting when he crashed his Corvette into a parked truck on Whittier Drive, near the intersection of Sunset Boulevard, in Beverly Hills. He also had separated from his girlfriend of seven years, singer-artist Jill Gibson, later a member of the Mamas & the Papas for a short time, who also had co-written several songs with him. Berry was in a coma for more than two months; he awoke on the morning of June 16, 1966.

Berry travelled a long and difficult road toward recovery from brain damage and partial paralysis. He had minimal use of his right arm, and had to learn to write with his left hand. Doctors said he would never walk again, but he refused to give up, and ultimately succeeded."

..from American Graffitti..

Carol: [John turns off the radio] Why did you do that?

John Milner: I don't like that surfin' shit. Rock and roll's been going down hill ever since Buddy Holly died.

Carol: Don't you think the Beach Boys are boss?

John Milner: You would, you grungy little twirp.

Carol: Grungy? You big weenie! If I had a boyfriend, he'd pound you.

John Milner: Yeah, sure




I think I have Dead Man's Curve on VHS somewhere..
