1951 Commander, by the trim. I think i see a blurry V8 badge on the trunk.

Would like to see this one less blurry as there are aspects that make me think it might be a '50.
The fender ornaments appear to be too long to be the '51 style as does the hood ornament but both could be distorted by the movement. That could be a V-8 emblem on the trunk but we can't be certain. The rear window appears to be one-piece that would support 1951.
Both years used similar vertical taillamps but again blurriness distorts them.
Any better shot?

Being a sedan and having chromed gravel shields rules out Champion and the car appears to have the rear door vents, making it a Commander Land Cruiser.
(The only '50/'51 Champions that had bright shields were convertibles.)

For now, will call this a '50 as the first of two possible years.

Watched the movie on line. Car does in fact have a V-8 trunklid emblem, '51 style trunk handle and a one-piece rear window. Changing to 1951.

Here's another view showing the distinctive 1951 trunk lid handle:

It also confirms a one-piece rear window. The bumper guards are too tall to be 1950 units as well.

champions also have 1 back windows sometimes, it is the V8 logo (and trim) that counts

True. My rear window reference had to to with the year, not the series.
