I remember a Dustin Hoffman film in which Dustin drives an early Renault 4 at high speed along a dusty track towards a Church. He then runs up into the Church gallery and screams at a girl, preventing her marrying someone. I'm sorry, I can't remember the film title or much more about it. I don't think it was "The Graduate", but my memory is of the car, not the film....
The film is "The Graduate", the church is La Verne’s United Methodist Church, the girl is Katherine Ross, but the car is an Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider.
That's unless he interrupted a wedding in another film, of course.
