    "I'm Sorry, I Want a Ferrari."



    On the subject of videos, this one is too cute to pass up.
    From the 1959 Cagney film, Never Steal Anything Small.

    No man treats a motorcar as foolishly as he treats another human being. When the car will not go, he does not attribute its annoying behavior to sin, he does not say, "You are a wicked motorcar and I shall not give you any more petrol until you go." He attempts to find out what is wrong and set it right. Bertrand Russel

    Near the end of the clip he mentions Packard. I this was a 1959 film, Packard was already out of business in 1958 after the Studebaker merger.

    Good point about the Packard. Remember that if the film was released in 1959, it may have begun filming during '58. The script would have been around in book or screenplay form for some time before that, when Packard was still on the market.

    It's basically a musical, so the lyricist may have used Packard either 'cause he wanted to, or for the flow of the song's melody. Like the part where Cagney says, "...Desota," and she shoots back, "Oh go ta..."

    Regardless, it's pretty cool to see all those cars in as-new, showroom condition, and to hear the others referenced contemporarily.
