Richard Bossons is asking for help in identifying this 1920s car. He is researching Dziga Vertov’s 1929 Soviet masterpiece Man with a Movie Camera and is trying to track down the vehicle that was used as the camera car during filming in Moscow. We reproduce the photograph here. We acknowledge the copyright of the Film Museum and are showing the photograph only for research purposes.
We don’t think the car was Soviet made, but its Bentley-like radiator has us all stumped.
Can anybody help? If you can, please let us know through the “Leave a Comment” facility at the bottom of this post.
Any information would be much appreciated.
