Hi Gary,

Thanks for posting this.  I've become a "collector" of films that have
Healeys in them and have well over a hundred of them, but this wasn't one.
In watching the movie, I was wondering why it had such an oversized rear
view mirror until I saw they used it to reflect both the driver and
passenger in the car in the same shot.  As a Mercedes guy, I'm surprised
you didn't mention the Gullwing Mercedes in the final scene, driven by Leo
McKern, later famed for "Rumpole of the Bailey"  The whole movie is
available here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8v5vgk1cME

Healthy Healeying,
Rick Neville
