Silver Stars on Silver Screens

Mercedes-Benz is a luxury brand that filmmakers love to use as props that can easily recognize the socioeconomic status of a character. The presence of the silver star now goes beyond the mindset of the viewers of displaying one’s wealth but emphasizing the aspects of the brand’s reputation that they may not be aware of.

Below are some of the most memorable movies of all time featuring Mercedes-Benz vehicles:
