Don't worry, it's my worst item for this movie.

Front suicide doors — which makes it not a Vauxhall Light Six.

I think that it might be one of these, but it's a long shot, could be something American, and yes, I did notice the sidemount.

What do you do with the Hillman's 'safe' front door? ("Sidemount" is for the spare wheel, right?)

Ford Model Y?
Humber 12 Saloon?
Lanchester 10?
Lea-Francis Ace of Spades?
Morris Cowley 6?
Standard 9?
Standard 10?
Wolseley 9?

(These are models in our db, for the year 1934, that could loosely fit, to my eyes.)

Admit that it is not a correct guess, could be a Humber, though.

Ford, no too small.
Humber 12, possible but more likely a bigger car.
Lanchester 10, radiator grille wrong.
Leaf, possible but http://www.carfolio.com/specifications/models/?man=3516
Morris Cowley, possible.
Standard Nine/Ten, probably too small.
Wolseley Nine, no illuminated radiator badge.

The nagging thing here is that I'm sure, would you see the movie, even on a small screen, you'd tell immediately what the car was, John.

I am inspired by your faith, but not by my knowledge!

As another possibility, but without any certainty, to me it looks similar for size and appearance to a 1936 Triumph Continental 2-Litre Saloon except for some details (e.g. headlight size).

Pas mal, pas mal, Sunbar.

I'm going to scroll through the db for the 1935 year.

1935 Armstrong Siddeley 12 hp or 17 hp?
Bentley 3½ Litre?

Humber Snipe? (Maybe the Humber'd be too big.)
Morris Eight? (None with a sidemounted spare wheel, unfortunately.)
Rover [P1]?
Triumph Gloria?
Wolseley Hornet or Wasp?

Armstrong 12, possible, 17 has vee radiator so probably no.
Bentley no.
Daimler flutes not visible..
Rover, possible but looks a bit upright.
Triumph looks possible but bodywork on Gloria is a bit more sporting IMO.
Wolseleys, no illuminated radiator badge.

Armstrong 17hp.... I believe you hit on it!

The radiator grille does have a 'Vee' in the movie I can see a highlight in two screen grabs where the point of the Vee occurs.

Looks like this example to me, wheels also have the distinctive flat disc appearance.

edit-updated The headlamp size and other body-work details are better matched to this example

In your absence, johnfromstaffs, you pointed out the critical feature and direction to take!

Without your comment about the 17hp having a Vee radiator grille I doubt I would have Googled it. I noticed the day before the grille was probably Vee-shaped and the pictures of the A-S 17hp coincided with the sort of appearance I was looking for.

A good joint effort at elimination of possibilities, johnfromstaffs and DidierF!
