The most iconic cars in cinematic and television history .
While a car is not usually the first thing that comes to mind when you think "Hollywood star," many creators use automobiles as movie and television characters unto themselves. There are many ways a car can be portrayed on screen, as both prop and as a pivotal plot component. Indeed, think about your own favorite movies and television shows. Chances are many of the titles feature motor cars in a big way. Some cars are actually the stars of the show, as in the Pixar film 'Cars' (2006). A critical and commercial success, the movie featured dozens of talking vehicles and was praised by one critic as one of the "most imaginative and appealing movies ever." Some cars have become Hollywood legends. Sean Connery's James Bond is forever associated with his gadget-laden Aston Martin DB5. Who can forget Steve McQueen's character burning rubber in his Ford Mustang Fastback in 'Bullitt' (1968) during one of the most famous car chase sequences ever made? And Batman simply wouldn't be the same without his Batmobile. Cars have also made a big impact on the small screen. Some of television's most popular shows are distinguished by a set of cool wheels. Think 'The Dukes of Hazzard' and the General Lee screeches into view, horns blaring "Dixie.
