There is the 1962 movie "Hatari" with John Wayne, they have a right hand drive 
AD, unsure what year. They added a bed off of what looks like a ' 60 or ' 61 
Chevy. They really run the hell out of it! That little 216 (or possibly 235) 
was really winding up!. The Rhino's like to "kiss" it too! Good all around 
family movie.

on tv drooling over all the old trucks and got to wondering what other movies 

had a lot of trucks prominant.I have "They Drive By Night "with Bogey, George 

Raft, and Ann Sheridan, but there have to be others. I remember one about 
guys hauling explosives in South America, I think, from the Thirties or 
Fourties. It's interesting to see them as they were, working trucks trying to 

make someone a living. Any other memories out there?

Hi Morgan

The movie you're talking about is a 1952 french movie called "WAGES OF FEAR" 
(Le salaire de la peur)

It won the Cannes film festival movie award in 1953. It's a french movie 
about guys hauling nitroglicerine in south america. Actors are Yves Montand 
and Charles Vanel, and and the director is Henri Georges Clouzot 

I think you can find it in VHS or DVD. This is a real great classic. JP
