It has a Mercedes-Benz star but looks to me like 'made for movie' and the spare wheel changes between shots I think? Could be they used two cars?

It appears intended to be Mercedes-Benz 260 10/50ps 4-sitz Stuttgart Spezial-Cabriolet 'D'?

However I leave it to someone more expert to comment on the differences seen. Could it be modified or altered to keep running after the war with whatever was available?

"made for movie" is not correct at all. It's rather a car, which has more or less survived the war and was hold at live with a plenty of provisional work and parts of different vehicles.
This was usual in the Germany of the late 40ies, because new cars weren't available for private persons. And noone -except the black-market-crooks and -smugglers had money (resp. values, because until 1948 money, except the US-$, was worthless in Germany) for a car. And fuel and tires weren't available either.
