This one`s exceptional! In his book Riley RM-Series James Taylor says a prototype Drophead ``featured in a little-known British film called The Calendar.`` Well here it is; all several seconds of it. Personally I would have used some word other than featured but that`s me. I left a bit of Greta Gynt in the extracts to make the viewing worthwhile! click here
An RMD goes for an extraordinary sum at auction. See the whole auction and gasp. click here
An honourable mention in Poirot`s ``Adventures of The Italian Nobleman``. Short but sweet. (click here)

A Lynx in Poirot`s ``King of Cards``.  (click here)
An RM Roadster in ``City Beneath the Sea``. 1954 movie.You might notice that the Ford Avenue Productions credits at the end are longer than the actual movie extracts but I'm sure you'll find the scene of South Australia in Spring with bird calls in the background equally entertaining. (click here)
More Rileys in episodes of Poirot recently screened in Australia. (click here)
``Gideon`s Way`` first screened on TV fifty years ago. It`s still on GEM in Australia. There`s an RM Roadster here in an excerpt from the 1958 film on which the series was based. Just check the sound as it roars off!!
This one`s only for the most hardened of Riley Spotters. I`m reliably told that there are Rileys in the first several  minutes of this 1953 film, ``Turn the Key Softly``. But I couldn`t see them. Not even a young Joan Collins could tempt me to take a second look.
