The Martin B-26 Marauder (http://sunsite.tus.ac.jp/multimed/pics/vehicles/aircraft/B26-Marauder.JPG) has a single tail unit,
the Consolidated B-24 Liberator (http://mcmsoftware.tripod.com/B_24J_Liberator.jpg) has two extra engines -- one each side :D
You almost got it right: they are North American B-25 Mitchell (http://www.spitcrazy.com/Geneseo-B-25-in-air.jpg). On the right with the closed nose is a version G or H, the others with glass noses are versions C or D.

.... now it is getting a bit too late for the car. I'll leave it to someone else... :D

Even if the movie action is supposedly 1941 , this Chevrolet doesn't look 1940 or 41 but appears to be a Special DeLuxe 4 door sedan in military trim of 1942 as judged from sideview.

Sorry Sixcyl but the nearest plane is a North-American T-6 "Texan": the only disturbing thing is the very long exhaust pipe...:??:

Close... it's actually an SNJ-2 (Navy version of the T-6). It and the three others like it are owned by a skywriting company called Skytypers, which explains the long exhaust pipe - it's part of the smoke generator.
