Here's some screen shots with phones from "Sunset Boulevard" and a very young Jack Webb.

That's an unusually long handset cord on the white 202.

 That's what She said.
If you're a long way from home,
Can't sleep at night.
Grab your telephone,
Something just ain't right.

Ha, this was my chuckle of the day!

 That's what She said.
I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main roads. Searchin' in the sun for another overload.  I hear you singin' in the wires, I can hear you through the whine, and the Witchita Lineman is still on the line.

Thanks for posting those stills!  I had forgotten about the candlestick in the foyer.  I get the feeling that phone was placed to provide emphasis on the time standing still syndrome of the Desmond household.  Would that many metropolitan homes, particularly those of people with money, have still had candlesticks in 1950?  Rural subscribers are another story, but it seems to me that one would be hard pressed to find a candlestick as the "main" phone in the average metro-American 1950 household.

This movie still shot has many possible captions.

SPADE:  "Never mind the Maltese Falcon, Lady.  At least I know what happened to that pigeon that I ran over this morning on the way to work."

ARCHER: "And my kitty."

SPADE: "No, it's an AE 34.  Who's asking?"

Came across this surfing the net.  Not a movie, but one of my favorite shows as a kid:

Oh, and Lilly Munster (Yvonne DeCarlo) at age 18 (1940).

This is the opening shot of the pilot episode of "My Favorite Martian", 1963.  Notice the 5302 with F1 handset.

That phone Humphrey Bogart is holding as Sam Spade (The Maltese Falcon) is right here.  ;)  Take a peek.

It is a very nice phone, but it doesn't belong to me. The owner asked me if I could fix it. The nixie clock is a really cool clock and weather station. It is locked to the WWVB Colorado Station.

Is that a 34?  It looks almost as if it's made out of glazed pottery; I assume it's not.
