I was watching this French short film for my French course called "Samb et le commissaire" and it takes place in Switzerland and I spotted this telephone. It is blurry but the telephone is definitely Swiss.

On Monday, 20 April at 8pm EST, Turner Classic Movies will show the film "Kiss Me Deadly".  A Mike Hammer mystery from 1955 that among other things shows a telephone answering system using a built-in open reel tape deck.  Mike had some really cool stuff back then.

I think I remember seeing one of those featured in another thread on this forum a while back.

How about a couple of my favorite movie/TV ring tones?  In Like Flint and 24.

These are actually MP3 files but the forum won't let me upload them, so I have renamed them to .mpg.  If they won't play, you might have to save them then rename them (change the 'g' in the extension to a '3'), but they opened and played fine in Windows Media Payer for me after posting.

This is what I use for my ringtone.  I don't miss calls for not hearing them!

What's amazing is that though the Professor and the rest could build all kinds of things from coconuts, palm branches etc they couldn't fix the hole in the boat.

Murdock Mysteries shown on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting) and one of my favorite shows always has lots of phones in their episodes. The show is set in Toronto 1890s - 1900s. Usually the phones are many years newer then they should be.

The film George Washington Slept here was the funniest movie of Jack Benny's.  I can't watch it with my sides aching from the superb writing and perfect comedic delivery by the cast, especially Benny.  He always joked about the dogs his films were, but he never mentioned George Washington Slept here in any of his routines.  It was too good.

Most filmed and recorded movies and shows use vehicles sprayed with flattening agents to reduce the shine on their surfaces.  The glare was really bad with videotaped programs.  The Pilot episode of Danny Thomas' program when Andy Taylor was introduced to the public had him in a '58 or '59 ford squad car with the windshields removed to cut the glare.
