True, I never learned to spell ketchup.  It's from an old childhood sibling rivalry trauma.  You see, my sister loved ketchup and I hated it, and I loved mustard and she hated that.  So she called it "must-turd" and I called it "cat-sh*t".  And she loved pickled onions (yuck!) and I loved pepperonccinis (sp?).  And she liked horses and I liked motorcycles.  Go figure.
We get along fine now. 
But I still don't like catsup or piggled bunions. :P

Hmm.  My Pop was Dad, and Coke wasn't as preferable as Seven-Up.
What a bunch of mixed up, crazy kids; that post war baby boomer generation.
But we never ever called it a "Lucy Phone".  We called it The Telephone.

We called it "that thing you can't pry out of Mom's hand."

Ok, watching the Godfather. Toward the end of the movie, when Mike walks in on Carlo. Carlo is dialing a phone. I just noticed it's an obvious W.E. 5302.

About how many minutes into the movie is that?  I'll try to post screen shots.

BDM

Not sure, but it's real close to the end. He's the last guy he has killed before the movie ends.

Here are three screen shots.
About 2:42 into The Godfather.
I love it when Michael enters and the only sound is the dialing of the telephone.

BDM

Yup, that's it. Just before he hangs up the phone, you can see it's an F1 handset.

Here are some more pictures of phones that were used in The Godfather.

BDM

Oh yeah, plenty of D mounts and 302s. I believe in one scene, there is a B mount. I'd have to see it again. No candlesticks that I recall.

Here's a couple of telephones from Godfather Part Two.
That "gold" AE40 sure looks painted, not solid or plated. 
Probably got it from an unscrupulous seller on Ebay.
And with no line cord...was it even tested? ;)
