A young woman visiting in Mexico is kidnapped by a gang of bandits, who drag her through the rugged wilderness to their hideout. She manages to leave word for her friend Bill, who knows the country well. But when Bill cannot find a horse, his only available form of transportation is his roadster. Nevertheless, he is determined to come to her rescue, even though it means trying to drive the car across miles of rocky, broken terrain. Written by
In "Something New" a spunky girl and her boyfriend escape pursuing Mexican banditos by driving across impossible terrain in an equally spunky 1920 Maxwell. The film isn't the greatest example of cinematic art, but what a car! If the Maxwell could do half of the things it does in this film, the U.S. Army would do well to scrap their Hummers and replace them with a fleet of these venerable touring cars.
Those above the age of 40 will no doubt recall that the Maxwell was the car of choice of the notoriously stingy Jack Benny. The stodgy car provided a running gag on his popular radio and television programs for decades. Perhaps old Jack was on to a good thing after all.
Well worth a look.
