|CHAMPS IN FILMS, Sitting Target, UKE 231E (the number may be a false one?)|
Sitting Target, made in 1972, is the story of two escaped convicts who carried out a cash robbery but one of them double-crosses the other for not only the cash but also his wife.
The final scene is a car chase with one of the robbers, Harry, driving a Champ and the other driving a Hillman Avenger car. Harry in the Champ eventually smashes and wrecks the Avenger in a railway yard and then shoots his old partner-in-crime.
The Champ looks to be a standard army WN1 - but the engine noise? - and not many people would like to corner a Champ as it is in the film! The music is quite stirring too and has quite a following.
Cast: Oliver Reed, Ian McShane, Jill StJohn and all the old favourites of the era.
The movie can usually be bought off eBay.
