The Impossibly Difficult Name that Movie Game

A truck. That's it. How cruel can we be! Of course, there are two men in the picture but good luck trying to figure out who they are. The truck has mud splattered on it, too....if that helps.

As always, if you are not familiar with the rules of The Impossibly Difficult Name that Movie game or the prize, click here!


Congratulations to Damsbo for cracking this hard nut! This is a screenshot from the Jayne Mansfield film "The Wayward Bus" ( 1957 ) which tells the story of a group of passengers ( including Joan Collins and Dan Dailey ) whose lives change when they take a rundown old bus through the desert. In this scene, character actor Will Wright ( Old Ben on "The Andy Griffith Show" ) is getting out of the truck and about to enter the diner.

    1. Good guess! The truck is similar...but no, that's not the film.

    1. Another good guess....but no, not the right film. Try again!

  3. I think that's the 1930 Ford AA truck featured in "The Wayward Bus" (1957)

    1. Martin! I am sooo impressed! That is indeed the truck and the film! I don't know how you do it, but way to go!

    2. It starts with identifying the vehicle's make and model, and then gathering a list of black-n-white pre-1970 movies in which it was featured in more than a background role. This part can involve browsing through parts of the movies. Then filtering out the candidates where the vehicle is different in one or more of its features, and finally deciding on the most likely of the remaining candidates. I'm sad to say that I haven't even watched the movie.

    3. Wow, you are quite a detective, Martin! Especially since this screenshot did not have many clues to give. "The Wayward Bus" is actually a pretty good film. It was based on a John Steinbeck novel and features some gritty characters.
