I was only 12 when I saw the film, but there was something about Rosanno Brazzi's Muira, but mainly it was Raf Vallone's dark blue Dino coupe that really caught my eye.

Although the film was typical of late '60s British cinematic mischief making, it also said a lot about the conservative British industrial complex as, allegedly, BMC gave a very small number of Minis (in single figures I believe) whereas Alfa and FIAT provided everything from the Police Giuliettas to the little Nuova 500s seen in the traffic jams and the FIAT car transporters.

Re: FIAT Dino

On the subject of Italian cars on the screen, I wonder if anyone has been watching Inspector Montalbano on BBC4 lately. If not you can probably find it on iPlayer or catch up.

The "Young Monatalbano" series is full of classic Italian cars, the Police cars are all Alfa 156 and Tipos. The later series finds Montalbano still driving a Tipo, but a late model as opposed to the DGT variant in the early series and the liveried cop cars are 'new' Bravos and Alfa 159s.

Worth a look if you can deal with the subtitles.

Mmm, just had a thought, but what about a Forum road trip to Sicily? Just a thought...................
