Hollywood Star Power and the Jaguar XK-120

There were many reasons why a certain group of Americans became enamored with sports cars during the 1950s.  While we often think of the MG-TC and MG-TD and early sports car racing, with out question the high point of British Sports cars during the early 1950s had to be the Jaguar XK-120 and successor XK-140. Hollywood stars enhanced the desirability of this car, as the following photographs illustrate:
