In the first minutes of the picture, when Grant and his secratery are making a cab-ride, the cab is followed many minutes by an early model Skoda Octavia.

Citation And it's not above here!

Now it is! :)

It is the Skoda 440 Spartak (1955-59), which became the Octavia after a facelift in 1959.
It could also be the more luxurious 'Super 445'.

Actually Skoda should be written Škoda.

We could do that change, I just hope that it won't be a problem that a character of another charset is used in URLs. I will make a test before doing the change. I also have to add an automatic replacement of Skoda to Škoda for the search and for old links.

Special characters, or rather the omission of those whilst searching, works for Citroën (Citroen) and Facel Véga (Facel Vega or Facel-Vega), does not work for Drögmöller (Drogmoller or Droegmoeller), Kässbohrer Setra (Kassbohrer Setra or Kaessbohrer Setra), Phänomen (Phanomen or Phaenomen) and Zündapp (Zundapp or Zuendapp).

The German special characters (umlaut / voyelle infléchie) can be replaced by two letters when typing:
ä = ae
ö = oe
ü = ue
ß = ss and rarely (historic) sz
(hope you can see the letters)

For Škoda it would be important to be able to write it Skoda as only few people write it correctly.

Actually the database is stored with latin-1/fr charset. I do not know how to set it to west-european latin-1 to also allow german characters that are actually in the same charset that french characters (latin1). At the database level the only difference between latin1/fr and latin1 seems to be the way it works for sorting and searching.
Locally (on my PC) it works fine. But I think that the MySQL server of OVH (where IMCDb is hosted) is either a little older, or not configured to allow to change the charset of the tables.

Ad Spartak - that is very odd :) - my father used to have one in 1958, but I am from Slovakia (former Czechoslovakia), so it is quite understandable :D . I showed him this page and he was really surprised as he said, that Skoda was exporting Spartaks to western Europe, but to USA - that was almost unbelievabla :)

About the police car/Mercedes photo...It's said that one of car builder/customizer George Barris' first film jobs was making aluminum components for this scene for the cars to comically "crumple".

Ingo DE

Yes. See the comments at the Mercedes-page. You can even see in the original movie, that the Mercedes didn't got damages.

I agree. I've hard of architecture-students, that their professor's recommend that movie, because of the legendary house, where Cary Grant climbs up the wall-holder. This house -I actually don't remember its name- is also shown in several architecture-books.

Although modern in appearance it was not a real house apparently.

"The simple truth about the Vandamm house (in North by Northwest) is that it was not a real structure, and that it was not designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It was designed by MGM set designers for some very specific reasons; some of the reasons had to do with the movie’s plot, some were based in the mechanics of movie-making, and not a few were because Alfred Hitchcock had a point to make."

The Skoda car was a popular car in Belgium after the war and very popular at the end of the fifties. Many socialist deputees had Skoda cars.

@Sunbar: oh, this is new for me. I've really heard that by architectures and architecure-students. It was said to them, that it should be designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Just yesterday I got a book from the local historic-club of our village. There is a pic from 1958, where a Skoda is to see. But here this model was named "Octavia" ("Felicia" the convertible), "Spartak" was unknown.

What model was the Biplane that was used in the now famours corn field chase ?

14stutz US

2010-04-09 06:53

CRAFT372: The biplane is a N3N, a US Navy training plane from WWII.
THe plane has been restored in US Coast Guard colors and was recently sold.
The mock-up that crashes into the tanker is a Stearman N2S/PT-17 USN/US Army trainer also from WWII.
Both types were extensively used post-war as crop sprayers.

When Roger Thornhill rides in a cab at the start of the movie, he is followed by a Jaguar saloon - somewhere between Mark Seven and Mark Nine - the differences are hard to spot.

The Mk7 has a split windscreen, the Mk8 has a one piece windscreen, the Mk9 was 1958+, maybe a bit new for a 1959 released film.
