AMCs in the movie "The Pusuit of Happyness"
Reply #10 - 04/14/07 at 20:50:01
 
Watched the Will Smith movie "The Pursuit of Happyness" last night. Pretty good film. If you watch it, pay attention, the director or somebody must be an AMC fan because every scene with traffic, there are AMC cars in it. Not to mention Will Smith's car is  a Concord, and his friend has a Hornet. There are multiple Gremlins, Americans, and other AMCs in the background in the scenes with cars. I counted at least 8 AMCs in the movie, hilarious!

My wife and I saw that movie last month and I swear I pointed that out to her and she thought I was crazy, not that I'm not, but I'm glad someone else noticed all the iron. It was a moving movie also.

If you want to see a bunch of AMC's on the small screen, watch a show like The Rockford Files.  I always spot a quite a few in many episodes.

Just suffered through "2-Lane Blacktop"and saw a blue early Javelin and an A-scheme Scrambler coming down a hill in the background of the dragstrip scene.  I'm SOOO bored!!!
