Cottin & Desgouttes cars in Movies

Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang

The United Artists film Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang, launched in 1969, starts with a sequence of imaginary "Grand Prix". Alongside several make-believe cars built for the film, there were a few real Edwardian cars, including a Cottin & Desgouttes. It appears this was the  Grand Prix 1911 that now belongs to George Wingard.
