The Manchester Group was recently asked to provide pre WW2 cars for a film being made by the University of Manchester. The film, a short feature due to be shown at a National Festival, is titled "ATA GIRL" and three pre WW2 Standards belonging to members of the Manchester Group together with a 1938 Austin 10 were used in the film that was shot on location near Oldham in Lancashire. Participation involved conveying characters in the film being taken to a WW2 dance hall whilst other vehicles were parked nearby. Another Standard was filmed passing by during the sequence. The Standards taking part in the film were Bryan Jones's 1937 Flying 12, John Rowbottom's Flying 12 (1939) and Graham Hart's 1939 Flying 10. The shoot involving the cars was taken during the evening of May 1st, 2006.
