IH Tractor Sighting in a Movie

Watching the 1972 movie “The Getaway” staring Steve McQueen and Ali McGraw. 

Right near the start of the movie there is an  IH tractor in a scene for a few seconds, way in the background of the scene. Tricycle front, I thought it was LP gas, may have been a 706, looked like it had a disc hooked to it. 

Anyone ever noticed it in that movie? .... just brought it up for grins and giggles. Always cool to spot IH in movies.

Over on IMCDb there was an IH tractor in an old Japanese TV series called "Daitokai" I thought is rare.

International Harvester unknown

Everything about that looks rare, what do you suppose all that means on the hood? My guess is “1 hr sushi delivery “

Lots of IH tractors in "Days of Thunder".

Opening theme for the TV show "Dallas" had an 806 with a cab and a mid mounted cultivator. 

 

   There was a thread on here about that 806 with current pictures of it.

In the movie, in the heat of the night they visit an iH dealership to question a guy about a murder suspect and in the service area there was an 806 in the background getting worked on that actually had 1206 painted rims.

Just went and watched the trailer of the movie, I haven’t seen it.
 

Now I’ll have to find time to watch it

I’m always up for seeing IH iron in films but I figure with it being a Tom Cruise movie it will be good.

Some of you may have seen this one already.

From the McCormick -IH Archives at the Wisconsin Historical Society

Actor Ken Berry and actress Marianna Hill with a Farmall 656 tractor on the set of the television show "Mayberry RFD." The tractor was a prop for the episode titled "Millie's Girlfriend" which aired on March 24, 1969.

Days of Thunder was a 1486 or 1586 pulling a mounted sprayer? Kinda overkill but still pretty cool. Haven't seen that movie in years.
