By the vertical B-pillar it must be a 4-door sedan. But I'm afraid we cannot see the difference between the 6-cylinder Champion and the V8 Commander :/

I think the fender guides on top of the fenders make this a Commander.

It's as simple as that, indeed :)

It's not as simple as that, I'm afraid.
Fender top ornaments were optional on '51 Champions and '51 Regal Commanders. Standard on State Commanders and Land Cruisers.
This is PROBABLY a Commander but that cannot be stated for certain without seeing more detail

Thank you, but what we really need to pin this down would be a close up of the driver's side front area between the spinner and the fender showing the nameplate script, a close-up of the hood crest or a decent view of the trunk lid showing whether or not there is a V-8 emblem.
These are the only sure fire ways to tell ALL 1951 Champions from ALL 1951 Commander models.
That said, State Commanders had bright gravel guards. No Champions had bright guards except for convertibles.
Also, all Commanders had bright rocker trim while only Regal Champions did.

We do know it it not a Land Cruiser because those models still had the fender side nameplates as all the models did in '50. There is also no
rear door vent window.

(It was much easier to tell Commanders and Champions apart in 1950 than in '51.)

The only other place I saw it in the movie was here, way in the background:

Thanks for trying, anyway.
And all shots are welcome.
