Hollywood and the Car

The capital of both car consumption and movie production, Los Angeles has witnessed the potent relationship between these two forms of expression. Both cars and movies combine art, technology, and image making. Both revolutionized how people spent their leisure time. And both represented a mixture of glamour and mechanical convenience to the American public. The Petersen Automotive Museum Hollywood Gallery presents an array of vehicles that illustrate how cars were used on screen, how they played an essential part in the opulent Hollywood lifestyle, and how they helped put the “motion” in motion pictures.
