The year is definitely 1936, but it's impossible to tell if this car is a Series 60, 70, 75, 80 or 85, if the body is by Fisher or Fleetwood, if it's a standard sedan or a touring sedan, an imperial (limousine) or a touring imperial, if it's for 5 or 7 passengers, if it is has auxiliary seating or a division glass between front and rear copmpartments. These "different" body styles for 1936 all look the same from 30-feet away.

One would need to see the grille and hood side emblems to determine, above all, if it's a V8 (Series 60, 70, 75) or a V12 (Series 80 and 85). Then a look at the interior would be required to pinpoint the correct style number.

In these circumstances, I would avoid a specific model designation and call it simply a "1936 Cadillac 4-door sedan".

This unit looks relatively short and seems to correspond to the 121 inches of the series 60 , very close to the La Salle's 120 inches.The higher series had longer wheelbases. Series 70 and 80 measured 131 inches,series 75 and 85 138 inches, series 9O 154 inches.

I have a black 36 Series 60 touring sedan and it sure looks alot like my car! But the body could possibly be slightly larger making it what, a 70 series?

I've watched this movie, and close-ups of the grillework show it to have the bars widely spaced. I think that makes this a lower series with a V-8.

I'm thinking Series 60, 5-pass. sedan. It's hard to tell the difference between the 1936 Cadillac Series 60, 70, 80 models (BTW, "gmerkt", the spacing of the grille bars was identical on ALL 1936 models except the sixteen-cylinder, Series 90 cars). As you can see from the manufacturer's catalog, the designers' drawings and artists' views tend to lower and lengthen the cars; they were in fact much more "stubby" and tall, as may be seen in the movie stills.
