XMs in movies

Post by White Exec » Tue Mar 10, 2015 12:03 pm

Just came across this...
http://www.imcdb.org/vehicles.php?make=citroen&model=xm

:o Seven pages of XMs in films, with a useful star rating according to how much the car features! Gosh!
Also possible to enter any make and model of car, and get a listing of cinema and tv appearances.

To make it harder, what about XM's in British TV and film only. Abroad is too easy!

I can name a few Tv shows.

Yes, I've seen the famous chase scene from "Ronin" - great fun!

Still enjoy classic Rovers on film: The Man Who Haunted Himself, Smiley's People, plenty of George Gently, Foyle's War. Somewhen in the '70s, my dad loaned his 1947 Rover 16 Sports Saloon to a London film company for a weekend's shooting. They asked if it was ok to remove the small rear window for filming, on condition everything was put back perfectly. Never did find out what she appeared in!

I have previously posted 'Brassed Off' and as I recall the car in which the coal mine manager is chauffeured appears twice in the movie. Although the setting is supposedly 1992/3 a 1995 (year of film) model appears!

Well the tv shows I know to add to Matthews film are,

Bergerac... Many episodes.
French Fields... Many episodes and included Peugeot 605 and Renault 25
I believe Taggart
All about George... With a mk1 swapping to mk2 dark green estate
As time goes by.. Background

Another UK film is Jack and Sarah with Richard E Grant and a dark green mk1 estate.

I am sure there are many more, but these are the ones I can at least remember. I watch too much telly.... :?

Has anyone noticed the continuity error in Ronin? The car chase goes on for so long the S1 XM becomes an S2 😂😂😂

Most modern remake films are rubbish. I saw Robocop (2014) recently. A pale immitation of the original film.

On another note, went to see "Mustang" a couple of weeks ago. Very good...but no XM's...
