This candid snap of actor Michael Caine propping himself up on a Ford Transit was taken during the filming of British action thriller The Fourth Protocol.

Released in August 1987, the movie was adapted from a Frederick Forsyth novel and mostly shot on location around the Heelands district of Milton Keynes, in the U.K.

The story sees British spy John Preston, played by Caine, recently demoted by his boss for a well-intentioned but unsanctioned mission, stumbling onto a covert plot by KGB agent, brilliantly played by Pierce Brosnan, to build and detonate a nuclear bomb on British soil and blame it on the U.S.

Henry Ford entertained many famous guests at Greenfield Village, his living, working Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, Michigan. One visitor was well-known and prolific author H.G. Wells, who died 71 years ago this week.

Remembered for his enduring science fiction novels such as The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds, Wells’ visit in 1931 must have left an impression on the author as Ford featured in his novel, The Shape of Things to Come, just two years later.

The novel speculates on an alternative history between 1933 and 2106, during which a world state is established in order to solve humanity's problems. In the book, Wells describes Ford as an “original-minded industrial,” and paints him as a bit of a rebel, who wasn’t prepared to blindly follow the establishment; which sounds familiar.

“They had carried production far beyond the consuming power of human society. So long as all this enterprise could go on, it did not seem necessary to them to trouble about the political and monetary methods of their world. Now and then some of them showed a certain restiveness at the banking network; our typical original-minded industrial Henry Ford, for instance, had two vigorous tussles with the bankers during his career; but generally the phenomena of political and financial strangulation only began to compel their serious attention after the great Hoover Slump (the Thirty Year Slump) was well under way.”
