A scene from Henri-Georges Clouzot's 1953 film The Wages of Fear. Yves Montand as Mario Livi drives one of the trucks loaded with nitroglycerine. Charles Vanel as Jo is in the passenger seat.
Charles Vanel and Yves Montand driving the fireworks home from Tesco’s

Today we bought fireworks. I mean we really bought fireworks. They’re having a toofer at Tesco’s so we wound up with a shopping trolley-full of fireworks for half price. Driving them home was like The Wages of Fear – I maintained a steady 5 mph as the sweat beaded on my forehead. We’re going to set them all off in the garden next weekend. I hereby prophesy that we’ll manage about three Roman Candles before one or all of the small children present goes bonkers or a parent sets light to the shed and we have to call the whole thing off.
