Johnny Dark 1954 Tony Curtis Piper Laurie Action Comedy

Stars: Tony Curtis, Piper Laurie, Don Taylor

Automobile engineer, Johnny Dark, designs a radical new car. Johnny wants the owner to sponsor the car in a Canada to Mexico Sports-car race, but the owner refuses. The trouble is that Curtis is working for a motor car company that is very stodgy in its ways. The head of the company is Sidney Blackmer. It is with Blackmer who says his company has no place for the sports car that Curtis has designed.┬áJohnny, with the aid of the owner’s granddaughter, steals the car and runs the race against the favored driver, his ex-buddy. A really fun picture in glorious Technicolor.

Tagline: A story of fast cars…reckless women…and sudden danger…and a guy who loved all three!

Did you know?

This film featured some prime examples of a custom-fiberglass bodied sports car made in Lynwood (a suburb of Los Angeles, CA) in limited numbers by a small auto-maker company. The car was the Woodill Wildfire, made from 1953 to 1957 in small, hand-crafted numbers by Woody Woodill Motors. The film also features many other rare early-1950’s American sports cars, made in small numbers by independent manufacturers. They are rare collectors’ cars today.

If you are into car racing films, Johnny Dark gives you plenty of high speed action of two man racers flying throughout the open roads of 1950’s America.
