Rolls-Royce In Popular Culture

Rolls-Royces have often been used in popular culture as a stereotype of wealthy people, particularly millionaires. Examples include the one driven by the eccentric millionaire in the film, "City Lights" (1931), starring Charlie Chaplin. In the film "One Hundred and One Dalmatians", the villainess Cruella de Vil drives a long, red Rolls-Royce.
