I thought it was an Amilcar, a French car from the 20s but on subsequent viewings I've had my doubts. Looks more like an MG TC with a different radiator grille.

It looks like a Singer 9 Le mans, dash layout is the same, so is the fuel tank, running boards, and tyre mounting system...

It's a Riley, but you would need an enthusiast to say exactly which model -obviously from around the mid-thirties

According to the Internet Movie Car Database (IMCDb.org) the car is a 1935 Singer 9 Le Mans Special Speed.
