A killer 1951 Chrysler New Yorker convertible

TCM recently showed Angel Face, a 1952 Howard Hughes production starring Jean Simmons as a spoiled rich girl who drives a Jaguar and wants a mechanic (Robert Mitchum) to go with it. Disliking her stepmother (Barbara O'Neill, Scarlett O'Hara's mother), she pulls a cotter pin out of the automatic transmission, sending the Chrysler over the cliff in reverse. As jaw dropping as this crash is, there's an even better one at the end of the movie.
