The cars in Don’t Worry Darling are as gorgeous as the cast

Harry Styles definitely not spitting on Chris Pine, Florence Pugh falling out with director and co-star Olivia Wilde, Shia LeBeouf overshadowing a film he’s not even in… Don’t Worry Darling arrives in cinemas with a lot to unpack. Whatever else it may be, this is a very handsome-looking film, set in the fictional mid-century modern town of Victory (looks a lot like Palm Springs), with a definite Mad Men-meets-Get Out vibe. Every detail matters, up to and including the automotive eye candy. Here’s a list of Don’t Worry Darling's top five cars.

Unless our eyes deceive us, Don’t Worry Darling features first and second-generation Chevy Bel Airs, in saloon and station wagon form. Originally known as the Styleline or Fleetline, the Bel Air – the name evokes one of Los Angeles’s most gilded residential areas – soon became known as ‘the car next door’. This being '50s America, the car in question was roughly the same size as the house it was parked outside. For many, the ’57 Chevy Bel Air is one of the great classics of all time, in America but also beyond. The apparently Ferrari-inspired front end of the earlier car was replaced with a cartoonish expansive of chrome, a gleaming edifice that encouraged everyone to dream bigger. This was the jet age and, suitably inspired, Detroit’s stylists festooned their cars with nozzles, turbines, and boosters. Amusingly, the Bel Air was actually restrained in this regard compared to what was coming down the pipe. It was also available in a vast palette of colours, and an increasingly powerful range of bombastic V8s. Both attributes are fully exploited in Don’t Worry Darling.
