There's a great scene in the Coen Brothers' third movie, Miller's Crossing (1990), in which hit men come to kill mob boss Leo O'Bannon (Albert Finney) while he listens to "Danny Boy" on what appears to be a Victor II.

I was just watching an original Star Trek episode "A PIECE OF THE ACTION" and found a Brunswick console complete with a 3 way Ultona reproducer. Cool!

Sorry if this is a duplicate posting...

An Edison Standard B as seen in the 1966 western “A Big Hand For The Little Lady” I’m not sure what year this takes place in but it seems a few decades too soon for a machine like this.

That machine was playing a brown cylinder in that scene where the old Doctor is darning his socks... Talk about a mundane way to get into the photoplays.

I wonder if it was actually running and playing, or if they pumped in audio from another source?

The audio came from another source. It was more high fidelity than what you would hear from an acoustical recording with a 14 inch horn. Some canned singing trying to sound vintage.

Just by chance last night I was watching a deleted scene from Mel Brook's Young Frankenstein. A recording was made for Victor Frankenstein to be played at the reading of his will or rather the deceased read the will. It is an obvious Victrola Credenza which seems to have the lid missing since the record is turned over without lifting one.


It is also obvious why it was cut from the film.

I agree, that was pretty drawn out, and really not all that funny.

I did like the part where the needle catches at the end of the record, though.. :lol:

A couple of shots of a Columbia Grafonola tabletop model from the 1985 film Out Of Africa.

Source is from a VHS tape recorded 25 years ago excuse the blurriness.
