I guess it's for the 'Traction' in the background.
Is that scene shot in Britain or in France? If, Britain,this might be a Slough production CitroŽn Light Fifteen 1946+

Looks to be the UK. Vehicles are mostly parked on the left side of the street and there appears to be a light-coloured half-cab bus (right hand drive) in the background, centre-right.

I think it's Britain: the even-more-background cars seem to be a prewar Morris and a P2 Rover, and the format of the TA's registration, though illegible, appears to be British.

The chromed grille indicates Slough production, there were also some pre-war 12s built in Slough, my father had one from 1953 to 1955. Chrome grille, wooden dash, leather seats and advanced body rot by the time it went.

By the metallic paint and the big huncaps, and the fact that the double chevrons are almost invisible because they're placed behind the grille, this must be a 1949+ version of the Light Fifteen.

This was for the foreground car, sixcyl :D

And it's UK, yes.

The foreground chaffeau driven limousine is almost certainly the Rolls-Royce

Also the background CitroŽn is indicated by a 'frame'?

I didn't draw the frame. But never mind I'll keep it as background car. Are you sure about the R-R? The rear looks quite different.

edit: I was...80% sure the door trim and rear wheel arch designs are the same, but they could have substituted a different Rolls-Royce. There appears to be a rear wheel arch cut in the door? The other limo has I think a longer wheelbase?

edit: again...

Possibly the same if like this /vehicle_196651-Rolls-Royce-Silver-Wraith-1949.html

Needs a R-R expert - keep them listed separately at the moment I guess. :)

At this time, it was still possible to by chassis from RR, and quite a few other makers like Daimler, Alvis and Austin. The car could therefore be anything that has had a coachbuilt body fitted. Although it is most likely to be a Royce, it doesn't have to be.
