Sunbeam Alpine's were made between 1953 - 55 and were either a MK1 or Mk3. They did not make a MK2 model. The car shown above in "To Catch A Thief" is probably a MK3. The easiest way to identify a MK3 being the integral rev counter on the dashboard although this is not clear on this photo.

The "Series" reference is incorrect and refers to the latter models of the 60's Alpine's which was a totally different shape to the 50's models.

The Sapphire blue Alpine seen here is definately a Mark1 Alpine as the dash knobs indicate the larger knob in the middle just below the centre glove box is the ignition/light switch,wereas the mark 3 Alpine this switch is positioned below the rev counter,which would put it just to the left of Cary Grants knee

I believe it's called a Sunbeam/Talbot Alpine, no?

Although the Talbot part of Sunbeam-Talbot was dropped in late 1954 for saloons (sedans), "Talbot" was apparently never applied to this model in the first place; it was always advertised and named as the "Sunbeam Alpine Sports" with Sunbeam-Talbot purely being the manufacturer's name.

Where is gone the passenger seat? Was it folded down?

You just try driving a heavy alpine in gloves while keeping hair wafting gently in the breeze, Neither is possible
