I was watching a program called, "The Rise and Fall of Penn Station" on TV and noticed an interesting device for holding a candlestick phone. 

I thought the picture of the setup of an office at that time was interesting overall.

Came across this today, snippets of phone clips put together from movie/tv:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2_N9-MUI02A

Quite a few nice phones shown (better with sound muted).

Stranger Things, Season 3, Episode 1, At 37 minutes in

Modified, line light did not flash on ring, hold light did not change on answer, missing number card and line card. Smoke and mirrors but a nice color.

And the phone was supplied by Oldphoneworks.

As far as phones having the wrong ringtone is concerned, there is this thing called dubbing.  They dub in the ringing of a WE 500 for a lot of phones because that is what they have on hand.  Most people wouldn't notice the difference because most aren't phone experts like some of the member of this forum.

Randomly spotted this, a clip from Thames Television, apparently first broadcast 15th May 1986 (I wasn't even a year old yet!!!), showcasing what was on offer at the now defunct (swallowed up by Currys-PC World) electronics chain store Dixons, which at about 0:21 has a brief shot of a display of the then new telephones you could actually buy outright for use on BT lines...  :)

And just incase it's been geo-blocked, this is a screenshot of the telephones:

It shows fine.  I remember around the same time, I bought my leased phone from AT&T, after it's first breakup.

pink panther movie

Has this scene from "Trail of the Pink Panther" (1982) with Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau been dignified yet? It's hilarious, although the poor wall phone has to take some attacks. The cordage of the french material seems to be made to last.

The creators of Toy Story 4 must have had a Mickey Mouse phone!

At about 51 minutes in, Woody needs to hide in plain sight in an antique store...

Found this by coincidence hinted by an old post on a German telephone forum:

https://youtu.be/hKLaTTmmzJM?t=258

a) a continuity error only spotted by phone nerds, do you see it? :-)
b) embedded in the film a guide on how to disassemble the ZBSA19 :-) (disassembly part only starts here: https://youtu.be/hKLaTTmmzJM?t=330)

This phone was in the movie Cube Zero (2004). Does anyone know what it is exactly?

It has a special variety of push button dialling not compatible with touch tone systems.

That's an easily recognizable insignia in the center of the touch pad.  Philips, isn't it?

Having just seen a thread on the late James Garner,  It made me think of another private eye that used an answering machine.  Jim's stacked with the phone on the desk.  For Mike Hammer (Ralph Meeker), call the builders!  Big difference between 1956 and 1974!
