So, I decided to viewed the trailer and there's an Edison Standard.
That crank is annoyingly far from the case.
The room with the Standard is used several times in this film.
One scene in particular the key character is sewing and listening to the phonograph.
The camera pans the machine it as it plays. So far so good.
It's a two minute player with a two minute cylinder on it.
Another character enters the room and the music continues.
Then a long shot capturing both characters and the phonograph.
Oops, the endgate is now open.
