The Neon Ceiling is a 1970’s drama starring Lee Grant,Denise Nickerson, and Gig Young.  Grantplays a housewife and Nickerson is her teenage daughter.  They run away from home.  They find a desert café owned by a crusty recluseplayed by Gig Young.  Their first meetingis anything but good.  So Grant andNickerson return to Grant’s car (I don’t know the make).  They get in, and you guessed it, the carrefuses to start.  This is a crankingscene with dialog and lots of different shots. It is a long cranking scene.  Themovie is actually very well-acted and highly regarded.

This is my first post.  If I have erred, please let me know. 

 

The best movie car stuck scene that I have encountered wasfrom a 1967 crime drama starring Darren McGavin and Shirley Knight.  McGavin plays a private eye named Ross.  Knight and her boyfriend play thevillains.  Near the end of the movie theypush McGavin’s car down a steep incline that ends in a cliff.  The unconscious Ross recovers just in time toleap out of the car as it goes over the cliff.

 

Seeing this, Knight’s boyfriend climbs down the steep hillwith the intention of killing McGavin. As he stands poised above the private eye with a large rock in his handto deliver the fatal blow, McGavin pulls a gun from an ankle holster and killshim.

 

Knight who has seen this hops into her car, starts theengine, and drives past the edge of the embankment to get away.  Ross begins to climb up the hill.  Just as you think that the pretty lady isgetting away, you hear the car’s wheals begin to spin a couple of times.

 

The next shots come from the car where Knight is giving itall the gas she can.  She rocks it backand forth in a futile effort to get away. There are lots of good shots inside and outside the car.

 

I have not found how to get either movie, but they are twoof the best that I have seen.

The Neon Ceiling does have a good cranking scene, but no pedal shots.  Glad to have you aboard crochar.  I've been trying to remember other good cranking scenes from TV shows and movies back in the day.  A precious few have both cranking and pedal shots.  One of these days, when I really put my mind to it, I'll make a list.

Friday the 13th PartIII is a slasher movie with a cranking scene near the end.  The actress is Dana Kimmell.  She is trying to get away in a van thatstalls on a Bridge.  There is at leastone pedal shot.  It is a good crankingscene.

 

The Fog 2005 has a cranking sceneabout 2/3 through the movie.  Thecharacter played by Selma Blair is trying to get to her house to rescue her youngson before the Fog that brings death where it goes reaches the house.  Her car stalls on the road as the Fogapproaches.  There are no pedal shots.

 

Inferno is a 1950s movie thatstars Robert Ryan and Rhonda Flemming. It’s actually a good adventure film. There is a cranking and stuck scene near the end of the movie.  Rhonda Flemming plays Ryan’s young wife whohas fallen in love with a younger man. 

 

They went with Ryan into thedesert to show him potentially valuable prospecting sites.  When Ryan is injured, they promise to comeback with help, but they leave him stranded. They think he is going to die, but when the boyfriend flies over in aplane a couple of weeks later, he spots Ryan. They have to go back to kill him. 

 

They drive into the desert andFlemming waits by the car (an old convertible I believe) while the boyfriendgoes off to kill Ryan.  When he can’tbecause someone else gets to Ryan first, Flemming who has been watching withbinoculars gets into the convertible and tries to drive away.  Surprise, she hits a rock.  There is some cranking and then the car getsstuck.  It is not a long scene, but it isa good one.  There are no pedal shots ifmemory serves me.

 

Most of the good scenes that Ihave come across have happened unexpectedly.

I should start by saying that I do not drive and the experiencesthat I have are very short, but here goes. 

 

One evening a neighbor agreed to give me a ride to anevent.  We hopped into her stationwagon.  It was a luxury model with blueleather seats.  She had long blondehair.  When she tried to start the car itcranked repeatedly, but it did not turn over. She tried again and again.  Shewas getting more and more frustrated, as she was trying to help out and thedamned car would not start.  She took abreak for a couple of minutes and we talked. When she tried again, the car started. You can’t win them all.

 

It had snowed heavily one winter, and even in March, it wasfar from all gone.  I was walking througha parking lot when a lady called me.  Shewas standing on a mound of ice with a broom. She seemed to be trying to sweepthe ice from under the rear wheels of a large red convertible with a white top.

 

As I have mentioned above, I don’t drive, but I had heardthat if you put weight in the back of a rear wheel drive car, it might help youget traction.  She must have been desperateso she agreed to let me sit in the back while she tried to get the car off themound of ice. 

 

She had medium length black hair that was tied up in abun.  She put the car into gear and pressedlightly on the gas pedal.  Nothinghappened.  She tried again andagain.  Each time, she put more pressureon the gas pedal.  The wheels spun fasterand faster.  Finally, we got traction andzoomed off the mound of ice.  The wholeincident probably lasted less than a minute.
