A COUPLE from Dalton are celebrating after their classic car helped them to a silver screen appearance.
Maureen and Steve Foster, of Cross Green Drive, appear in the hit new film The Jealous God - along with their car the Ford Zephyr Six.
The film follows 30-year-old teacher Vincent, played by Jason Merrells of Cutting It, who has an eye for the ladies but is being pushed into the priesthood by his staunchly Catholic mother.
Vincent finally falls for librarian Laura-but her Protestant religion threatens to halt their romance.
Vincent also has to struggle with pressures from his family, including sister-in-law Maureen - actress Denise Welch - who turns to him for help with her drunk and abusive husband.
The film, based on a 1964 novel by John Braine, was shot across West Yorkshire, with Huddersfield, Keighley, Leeds and Halifax featuring among the locations.
It was directed by former Newsome High School pupil Steven Woodcock.
Maureen Foster, 52, said: "The car is in at the beginning and at the end.
"It's used as a taxi and I'm in one of the shots."
The film also used a classic Ford Consul owned by their friends Stephen and Linda Hine.
Maureen said: "My husband drives a classic car all the time.
"They are just different. It's motoring as it used to be.
"All the cars look different."
Maureen, who went to the premiere at the Rex cinema in Elland last week, said: "I was excited when I was on screen. There was a great atmophere on set and everybody worked together and was very friendly.
"We filmed in Rochdale - who knows, next time it may be Hollywood!"
