    Just an observation, I don't think it was a GT4 in "Rain Man", I think it was a 400i or something larger than a GT4.

    Also, I could swear it was a F355 Spider (spyder?) in "Sabrina", but I am less sure of that.

    Bingo! A 275 GTB/4 appeared in the 1970 film "A New Leaf" .
    Was too funny to see Walter Matthau under his jet-helmet struggling with oily spark-plugs in the daily traffic-jam. Imagine his face!
    The 275 GTB/4 had to be towed to the repair shop for many times because of
    that stop and go exercise (early F-mobbing). While this, I remember him sitting in the car. (LOL)
    And I have a second 275 GTB movie from 1965!

    missing Xenia :-(

    It was a 400i in Rain Man. (The one Cruise was driving that is.) I think there was one more as he drove in to his garage complex. Can't quite remember, it's a couple of years ago I saw that movie.

    Don't forget a great movie, Grand Canyon, with Steve Martin driving a 90 Fly Yellow Testarossa. Got shot in the leg for his Rolex at a shopping mall.

    That 328 in Beverly Hills Cop magically becomes a 308GTS in several scenes. The Hagar video features a black 512 not a 308. There are several Fcars in Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo (correct name?). I believe a 365GTB4 and a 246, maybe others, its been so long since I've seen it.

    Has anybody mentioned the Daytona Spider in "The Gumball rally"? If so, please disregard.

    Just my little contribution -

    The Ferrari in the movie "scent of a woman" was a Mondial T Valeo. Al Pacino wasn`t much for a clutch.

    Best regards, Jim

    P.S. I`m amazed at the ferrari movie knowledge posted...cool

    I've seen the guy (took me a while to realize that that was supposed Il Commendatore, but anyway), but that's not how this list works: FChatters can mention a movie that starred the same car they own. Then the film gets added to the list. So if you have a 330 GTC, tell us about "Grand Prix".

    For a car which some claim looks like a Supra or a Camero, the 550 Maranello sure has been featured in some major action titles as of late.

    This film starred David Jannsen and Senta Berger, each had a Spyder, but does anyone know anything about the car Senta drove, as it had a kind of Targa top to it? The rear window was fitted something like an early 911 style targa hard top - but you never get to see it with the roof panels in. I don't think I have ever seen any examples like this in any of my Ferrari books! I'd be interested to know if this was something from the factory or a special!
