I remember seeing several wind up phonographs on "Hee Haw" used for set decoration.They had a banner front Home,a banner front Standard,both either model A's or B's.In the cabin of Ida Lee and Lavern Nagger there was a junky looking Kimball upright phonograph.I remember telling my late friend Arthur Pare about the Kimball,and that it looked junky.He replied,"It would have to be junky to be on Hee Haw!" :lol: Does anyone remember Hee Haw?

Yes, and that grown-out roots look was very popular for women in 1885! :lol:

Watching yesterday chapter 47 of the French series on adventures of Maigret, the Paris judicial police commissar, performed by great actor Bruno Cremer, at 27:20 a scene takes place in an empty ball salon where an hmv 102 it's used to play a tango. Of course the music is superimposed, recorded on the sound band, but when the girl starts the gramophone, the needle scratch and the gaming on the groove noise are authentic, and recorded in the film.

Here's a link

And a still photo, for posterity (if the link disappears)

Here is a 1919 Harold Lloyd film with the opening scene an "any-brand" phonograph and Snub Pollard playing a record on it.

Ha, ha... Next, at 4:45 he uses the phonograph adding a bit of water poured on the record surface to grind his razor!

I can't find video, but I've seen Lloyd Hamilton use the mandrel of a Puck for the same thing

Just spotted this Victor Automatic changer VE9-54 that is either a custom cabinet or just altered for props. It is obvious the top and molding above the doors is correct but all of the doors and the legs are completely different from an original. With the doors open everything is correct inside as far as the changer and radio.

It is always interesting to spot these things. The film is 1941 "Unholy Partners" starring Edward G Robinson.
