Forgot about Harold and Maude. Good 1959 Hearse scenes. Some footage of what I recall to be a mid-century Cadillac Hearse can also be found in the decent horror flick, Dead Silence. There are also a number of great Hearse scenes in another horror picture, Dead End, where an early to mid-1950s Cadillac Hearse is shown following a group of doomed travelers. Check out the weird twist at the end of the movie, (especially as the Hearse pops up again, this time in daylight!). Something about 1950s Cadillacs, especially funeral cars. They epitomize the creep factor in automotive styling as they are both elegant and eerie looking at the same time. Clay/Lexi
P.S. Don't let the DVD keep case art of Dead End fool you. It shows a far more contemporary back end of a Hearse on the cover, which as I recall is not seen in the movie.

Not sure if I have seen this one before, Chrysler vs Cadillac - 1957. Enjoy. Clay/Lexi

In a similar vein this Chrysler biased review of '58 cars is pretty entertaining. Peter

Black Cadillac.  Sorry. I just saw this 5 minutes ago behind a shop as I was visiting a customer.

AD1997 that Black Cadillac movie is not too bad. Lots of tension and drama. Think it featured a 1957 Limo. Thanks for posting. There were some nice Limo scenes also in that old Robert Wagner movie A Kiss Before Dying. Think it was a 1954 Cadillac Limo. Also believe I saw a 1955 Caddy Limo in the Ray Harryhausen film It Came From Beneath the Sea. Clay/Lexi

Here few more movies containing Cadillacs:

Coupe de Ville, 1954 convertible in a major role.

My one and only, 1953 Eldorado gets fairly well screen time.

La Bamba, if I recall right, there can be seen some Cadillacs at least at the end of the film.

Coupe de Ville.... great movie. Here's one of the best clips. PG-13 video  ;)
