This year's Concorso d'Eleganza at Lake Como features cars from movie classics. The theme for this event is "Hollywood On The Lake."

The hotel on the Lake itself looks like a set for another blockbuster film. Cars featured include the likes of James Bond's vehicle of choice, the Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger.

Classic car owners share their history of the cars' roles in films like Richard Adatto, owner of a Delage D8, says: "Gene Kelly was sitting in this car in the back seat in the movie The American in Paris."

Apparently the vehicle was painted green for the film, but Adatto had it restored to its original body colour there after.

There's even a look at the Lancia Stratos Zero  - the lowest riding car ever built during 1970. Owner Phillip Sarofin claim that the late popstar Michael Jackson had a fascination with the shape and design of the car and used it for his Moonwalker film in 1988.
