Rolls-Royce released a handful of pictures of their stand at the 2013 Goodwood Revival, which capture the enchanting charm that cars with the RR badge bring to any motoring event. True to the spirit of Goodwood Revival, they brought along some of their finest classics.
The finest of them all, probably, was the 1965 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Continental which formed part of the Course Director’s entourage, and the authentic recreation of a 1960s Rolls-Royce dealership, the March Motor Works.
The recreation of the venue also saw filming the opening scene of ‘The Yellow Rolls-Royce’. Set in 1931, the scene includes the main character Lord Frinton (Rex Harrison) buying a Rolls-Royce Phantom II Sedanca De Ville.
The original ‘The Yellow Rolls-Royce’, released in 1964, was filmed in Austria, England and Italy. It grossed $5.4m at the box office, and won a golden globe, and three nominations including one for a BAFTA.
