Looking for a film with people frozen in a car

I saw this film on television in the 70s when I was young; it was broadcast sometime before 1979. Some people are stranded after a snow storm. At one point they discover a car in the snow, and when they look inside the car they see the people in it were frozen to death. I think someone cried out, "Oh, no, it's the professor!" (or something like that). At another point in the film they come across a cabin in the woods and try to open a can of something they find, but they have no can opener. The film was in color, so please don't suggest something in black & white. It may have been made for TV or it may have been an actual film; I remember there being a lot of commercials for it because we had just had the great "Blizzard of 1978" in Boston. Any help finding this film would be great! One person suggested to me it might be "The Untamed" directed by Archainbaud, but it is not that. PLEASE HELP!

What's your favorite car rolling over stunt?

Car rolling over filter: I'm looking for movies wherein a car rolls in a spectacular (potentially test-able) way. Or for an interesting or counter-intuitive reason. Think along the lines of the car flip on the way down Fillmore in Jade. Or the Bond/Casino Royale flip of the McClaren. Hopefully even more spectacular.

Movie scene with people frozen in a car

I am trying to find the name of a movie I watched on TV when I was a young kid back in the 1970s. The film was about a group of people lost in a forest after a blizzard. At one point they find a car and start shouting, "It's the professor!" But when they get to the car the people inside it are frozen to death. I'm pretty sure it was a film for adults that was being broadcast on TV or it could have been made for TV.

Movie with women ramming cars?

Movie ID: Two women in a parking lot have an extreme case of road rage, started by one of the women hitting the other woman's car with the door as she opened it. They proceeded to slowly escalate the altercation, and it ends with them trying to ram each other head on, but their cars are so messed up they that couldn't move quickly enough to do any real damage. I believe this ends up being some sort of dream/flashback/fantasy sequence.

Make of Green 2-Door Car Driven By Shelley Duvall's Uncle in "Nashville"?

Does anyone know the make and model of the green(ish) two-door car driven by Shelley Duvall's uncle in the Robert Altman film Nashville? I just watched the film again and that car was stuck in my mind the entire time. Do you happen to know this particular vehicle from within a film full of great looking cars?
