Doesn't look like a Mercedes at all. But it could be a special model built by some coach builder...

I agree. I don't think it is a Mercedes at all. Too low and right hand drive is utterly implausible. Also the hood vents, bumpers, hubcaps, etc. Too many details are non-Mercedes and actually no details really are. also, a Mercedes of this size and era would have a distictively positive camber to the rear wheels courtesy of the swing-axle.

The closest thing I can find is a mid 1930s 170 but again the details are wrong. The only thing right is the dang three pointed star on the bonnet :/

yes! because how often has someone seen a mercedes with such a FLAT grille?

well, the early ones, 1901, 1902 and so.

but later I know just ONE with a flat grille: the 630 from 1929. and it was a HUGE car.

no mercedes. I think, this one is kind of scratch-built.

I found another one with a FLAT grille in my books. roadster 260, stuttgart 1928.

same bumper as the one of tghe RIGHT car above.

as junkman wrote: bumper and hubcaps dont fit ... and I would say: headlight ar too big for that era.

but: nice try!

J'ai trouvé une Lancia 1937 Artena "qui lui ressemble". Il y a beaucoup de points communs (volant à droite typique de Lancia, etc...), MAIS, ce n'est pas la même voiture. Donc il faut penser qu'il s'agit bien d'une voiture italienne des années 1936/1937. Les voitures avec le pare-brise avant assez rectiligne et un pare-brise arrière au dessus du siège, comme celle dans le film, étaient en Italie des "coloniale" et principalement destinés aux colonies italiennes. Voici le link

Ce n'est pas une FIAT, mais il faudrait fouiner dans les modèles de la firme BIANCHI d'avant guerre (volant de quel coté?).
