This whole movie is riding around in 1955 in a cadillac. You can see the godess.

Cadillac Records about Chess Records in Chicago, a bit loose on facts and years [glaring Cadillac mistakes regarding the years the movie is set in].

Yep, entertaining but factually a fairy tale - for instance Little Walter didn't, to anyone's knowledge, kill anyone etc etc.

More recently, Jersey Boys featured three 1962 Caddy convertibles.

I just saw in the Bill Murray movie Scrooged, the ghost of Christmas past rear ends a 61 Fleetwood.

On Netflix you can find a TV show called The Finder.  It only lasted one season.   

But their car in the show is a 1962 Cadillac Convertible painted York Blue metallic.  The car seems to show up in most of the episodes.

I have seen very few cars painted that color.  I am looking forward to having mine done.

Tough to beat the first Godfather for mid century Caddies, but The first two Return of the Living Dead movies both featured Cadillacs prominently; 1960 (Eldo?) and a 1959 (Coupe?). A 1952 Caddy Hearse was featured in several creepy scenes in Dead End and for Limo lovers a 1955 and 1952 Series 75 was featured respectively in The Last Hurrah and It Came From Beneath the Sea. A Series 75 1954 Cadillac was also noted in A Kiss Before Dying. Clay/Lexi
