  • Brian De palma

    Nothing worth watching on the television last night. So I put on a DVD. Obsession. Music score by Bernard Herrmann. Details. Quite often, television programs, produce in America, I have noticed that when cars are being used, the inspection stickers on the windshields are missing. Generally, British filmmakers have the proper tax disc on the cars being used in their films. In America, all states require, each year, cars have to be tested to make sure they are road worthy. If the car fails the inspection, a rejection sticker will be attached to the windshield. It gives you about 31 days to have the car repaired. If you don’t do it in the time limit given. The car will be towed and the driver will receive a fine. Brian De Palma in this film, used the proper stickers for the windshields. The film, made in New Orleans, the story started in 1959. Proper stickers for that year was used. Brian De Palma film, Obsession was released in 1976.

      True, each year cars have to tested to make sure they are safe for driving. Tires are checked, to make sure your not driving with bald worn out tires. Headlights must be working properly, turn signals, wind shield wipers, and emissions controls. If your car fails the test, you will received a rejection sticker, attached to your windshield. One month the get your car repaired and in compliance with regulations. If you get caught driving without the required repairs, you will have your car impounded, a ticket issued, and possibly having your auto insurance cancelled by the insurance companies.

        If you check the end credits of many U.S. film and TV shows you'll notice the legend "automobiles supplied by Ford (or Chrysler)" . I assume the cars don't have 'inspection tickets' as they're brand new models off the assembly line given to the film companies gratis for the credit. That's why they can afford so many car smash-ups!

          Some years ago, either I read this or heard it on one of the tv shows that film companies sometimes will receive new cars from auto companies . The cars were cars that have been returned to manufacturing plants because of defects. Auto makers determine the cars are not worth repairing so they let the film companies wreck them.
