    Other than "Roman Holiday" (which I have), what movies have good scenes with scooters in action?
    Another one that comes to mind is the original "Day of the Jackal" that came out in 1973. In the opening scene, there is a blue Vespa being ridden by a messenger in traffic and he stops to make a phone call. You see the blue smoke and the hear the pop pop pop of the 2 smoker as it idles...

    Any more?

    Check out Diva from 1981.... I had to watch it in a Film as Lit class... though I think he has a moped... but there's a kickass scene where he's gettin' chased by a car on it.

    I just bought La Dolce Vita on DVD - lots of scooter action from the Paparrazo.

    But then Anita Ekberg's in it so who cares about the Vespa's.

    The Legend Of Billie Jean, staring Helen Slater.
    When those nasty hooligans trashed her brother's Honda scooter...., well, that made Billie Jean so mad you would have though she changed her name to Billy Jack.
    I would have been mad too, for it was one sweet Elite 125.
