The Yellow Rolls Royce of Hollywood
Our Los Angeles Tour Guests Love Carspotting
Our guide was impressed to have his private custom tour guests draw his attention to the yellow rolls royce parked at an auto service center. They were familiar with the 1964 film The Yellow Rolls Royce that follows the romantic stories of three owners of the same Phantom. The 1964 film written by Terence Rattigan stars Rex Harrison and Jeanne Moreau, George C. Scott and Shirley MacLaine, and Ingrid Bergman and Omar Sharif. Could this be the same car used in the film? It is certainly possible though Hollywood film aficionados know that movie companies always have a number of similar vehicles available during filming in the event something unforeseen occurs or to have different cars available for different purposes (principal shots and 2nd unit filming). Sometimes one car is driveable and used for “on the road” scenes while another inoperative vehicle is only used for close-ups. This could be one of those cars or maybe not. Just another yellow Rolls Royce Phantom in for an oil change in Los Angeles.
