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.

Never need apologize for the Batphone!

It's a weird one eh, tall, looks like it was squeezed.  Wasn't there a phone in the Batcar as well?

Sometimes the items to be found crosses different areas of collecting.  I mentioned this film on a clock forum as it featured a clock prominently and a member there found the short film online.  It also has some nice images and close ups of period phones. Thought it would be a nice entry in this compilation, too.

. . . Yes indeed that is Gina Lollobrigida.  You're not out of touch at all Heath.  I just couldn't find a photo of Gina with a telephone, and with Gina I always forget all about telephones.

Per the site, a stock photo from an unknown 1940s movie:

Note the padlock on the bottom of the phone. Can anyone name the phone?

I just watched the original version of The Taking of Pelham 123 tonight.  Here's a screen grab of a candlestick on a scissor mount from the film.
