I do believe that many, if not all, phones on Columbo were Design Line models.

I have no information on this picture. I came across it when surfing the net.

Yikes, early CGI.
1970’s TV show/advert? Does anyone recognize it?

Reminds me of the recent giant Princes models on eBay.

The image is from a TV show with the Carpenters singing an old Marvelettes song, Beechwood 4-5789.

You can find the video (if you really want to) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7nXagbBkuw

As soon as I saw the number at the top of the photo, the Marvelettes' version started playing in my head!

I don't know if anyone has noticed, But that phone is modular. Take a close look,at the front behind Karen and you'll see a modular jack.
Now I wasn't aware modular was around when that video was shot. It must have been done in the mid 70s or so..

If you look even closer you will notice the it is only a special effects picture that was likely displayed on a green screen behind her.

Well yea I knew that had to be blown up special effects because there are no phones that size, especially modular.

Had it been done in this era, I'm sure it would like the real deal.

Something I read today made me think about this bit from The Beverly Hillbillies.

Lol, I remember that now.. Oh how funny.
Edit, I remember back when I saw that episode, and not knowing a lot about phones still knew that was a bad idea being way up on the pole... Ahh the memories.
