What Year Is This?

The start of the film says 1953. That can't be right, there are newer cars on the road. The title of the clip say 1957. Maybe. But at 1:09 they pass the Admiral Theater and it's playing The Searchers with John Wayne. That makes it 1956.

Without watching it and just looking at the picture displayed I see a 1957 Chevy Wagon off to the right.

57 autos would have come on the market in 56.

Yep, late 56. New cars were released in August/September.

FYI, The Searchers premiered March 13, 1956. It might have still been playing in Hollywood as late as January of '57, leading into the Oscars that year, but not later than Feb. '57, and probably more like Fall of '56 in that clip.
