Good movie. Takes place in the present (1974 I believe, when it was made). There's a scene toward the end, where the Soviet KGB agent is at a hick town bar in the middle of no where. He uses an old W.E. pay-phone with the separate receiver and solid back transmitter. It's been quite a while since I've seen it, but I remember that.

Can't sleep at night.
Grab your telephone,
Something just ain't right.

Gina: No telephones required.  Off topic.

Gina Lollobrigida, Italian actress. She's still alive. She's one of those woman, that still looked good even in her 60s. Do an image search on Google, you'll see ;)

Thanks Brian.  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.  It is one of my many weaknesses.

Dean Martin is one of my favorite singers, and just an overall cool guy.  Love the Dean Martin show!

My 16 year old is a HUGE Martin and Lewis fan.  Not sure what the other 16 year olds think of that, his favorite comedy work is a couple of goofball post war standups and not any of the current funny guys/gals.

Well, I was a big Dean Martin fan when I was 16, I'm 18 now.  Just bought a 3 disc set of his music too, gonna have to load that onto the computer.  Right now I'm just a bit busy listening to some good ol Waylon Jennings.

I'm watching Ronald Reagan in mashing the Money Ring (1939) on TCM channel right now. It's loaded with all sorts of phones. W.E., A.E., even a Kellogg 925 "Ashtray" non dial white phone.

Speaking of Reagan, is he yelling into a princess phone here?
