             There were a lot of interesting parts in the movie but there were also parts that I didn’t like. When we first watched this movie I thought, how is this related to Economics? At the beginning it just seemed like it was going to be all about cars and nothing else. I think it’s hard to relate to because it’s not how things are today and I have trouble with movies that aren’t up to date. I thought that it was funny when they were getting ready to present the car and it caught on fire. But then after that they just brought it out and there was nothing wrong with the car. It was also weird how there was no smoke or anything. Another thing that I didn’t like was that it seemed like there were several parts that were extremely drawn out and they made the movie way too long.
             There were many ways that the demand curve shifted throughout the movie. An example of the curve shifting would be when only three hundred people were invited to the showing of the car and close to a thousand showed up. That showed a desperate need for a new kind of car for the public. Population was also a key factor in the curve shifting. This movie took place right after WWII ended, so a lot more children were being born everyday. This made a demand for a safer and more dependable car increase greatly. Another factor that made the demand curve shift would have to be how all the public wanted a cool, flashy car that was something that they had never seen before. They wanted something different than what everyone else had. Another thing is that these cars were a lot more expensive than other normal cars and therefore they made the people that were driving them look extremely wealthy. Everyone wanted a Tucker car because it was the first car that had a rear-engine, a padded dashboard, a fuel injector, pop-out windows, and a seatbelt that stretched across the back seat for extra protection during a crash.
