The Film, Un Taxi Mauve or ‘The Purple Taxi’, was Fred Astaire’s final feature film. 

The film tells the story of three expatriates, an Irish-American, Frenchman and a Russian, who are all trying to expose the swindle nature of each other and deceive each other. Astaire plays the local Irish doctor and owner of a purple car. 

Scenes of the film are shot in various locations across Connemara but in particular, around the Renvyle peninsula.
