I’ve written about Ken Roberts a few times on this blog. He’s the automobile enthusiast who recreated the Jaguar hearse from the 1971 cult classic film, Harold and Maude. Read all about it in A Real Jaguar Hearse Inspired by Harold and Maude (Dec. 23, 2015) and How to Recreate a Famous Jaguar Hearse (Aug. 22, 2016).
In this video interview, illustrated with selected clips from Harold and Maude, Ken Roberts reveals:
- Why he decided to undertake a project to revive this movie’s iconic automobile.
- How he and his team discovered the minute details of the vehicle’s construction.
- The mistakes they made along the way, costing enormous amounts of money and time.
- The one major difference between the movie vehicle and Ken Roberts’ recreation of the Jaguar hearse.
Look for the Jaguar hearse at Jaguar Concours d’Elegance competitions in the United States and at other special events! Interested in sponsoring a vehicle visit and film screening of Harold and Maude? Get in touch with Gail Rubin.
