I received a 'coffee-table" book for Christmas: "Convertibles; History & Evolution of Dream cars" ( Guzzardi & Rizzo, 1998). It includes a modest reference to the 2600 Spider, but most notably a photo taken from 1965 movie 'The Battle of the Villa Fiorita' showing co-stars Maureen O'Hara and Rossano Brazzi in the car.

This movie seems to have been missed by and I've never seen a 2600 related reference to the movie previously. I did find a pic from it on, meaning that the car appeared in some promotional material.

Has anybody seen the flick? I wonder how prominent the car is in the movie.

Here are the latest listings on ebay...'The+Battle+of+the+Villa+Fiorita'&rt=nc

I just bought a lobby card of the picture above.

Hot bidding going on for the 16mm film version.

Check out the one pic with the left side phare where a side view mirror usually is !

Looks like it was available in other titles.

I can't find any info on whether it was available on DVD or VHS.
