Would love to hear Elmer's comment on this Truck. Never knew this model existed. Anyone have any information on these?

From what I understood, Maple Leaf trucks were vehicles made by General Motors of Canada from the early 1930s until the beginning of the 1950s. They were using mostly Chevrolet parts, hence the "Chevrolet" grille for the truck of this movie, but were heavier models than Chevrolet trucks (which biggest model, until 1946, was a 1½-ton model). Some were apparently exported to Australia and other countries from the British Commonwealth.
This one is clearly from the Canadian version of the 1941-47 Chevrolet 'Art Deco' truck line, and if this truck line followed the US changes (which is practically certain), the bumper indicates a 1946-47 model.

You may find some more info in this thread of the Stovebolt forums.

This page gives 1935-1952 as production range, for the Maple leaf trucks. The included tables indicate that this Maple Leaf was either a 2-ton
18, a 2½-ton 16 or a 3-ton 17 (the 18 being lighter than the 16 and 17 is not a mistake).

Thank you Elmer. Always full of knowledge ;) my dad was extremely interested as he always watches Mecum/Barrett Jackson auto auctions. Needless to say he hasn't seen one show up yet on either (not to say one hasn't). I sent him the link to this page so he can read the few links you posted.

@ dhill_cb7: you're welcome. My knowledge was built up thanks to the one shared by other people in books, magazines and websites, so sharing it again is the least I can do ;)

@ Exiv96: I first thought that too. Chevrolet and Maple Leaf were apparently separated makes for the early models (see this 1935 ad, this other one or this 1936 one), but from 1937 or 1938 onwards, the Chevrolet name seems to appear always with Maple Leaf in ads (see this 1938 -Australian- ad or this 1950 Canadian one), and both names are present on the trucks (see 1938, 1939, 'Art Deco' and Advance Design trucks). So I'm not so sure, in hindsight...
