Default Re: Vintage Radios, TVs etc in films and on TV (not anachronisms)

This may be a bit tenuous, but SWMBO and I watched "The Mercy" a few days ago. In an early scene in Donald Crowhurst's house in Teignmouth, there was a case in the background which reminded me strongly of a Brennell tape recorder. Since the lid was closed, I couldn't be confident, but certainly the catches on the lid and the carry-handle looked familiar....

Another recent film which we saw has lots of electronic contraptions in various backrounds; the film in question being "The Shape of Water", which is set in a research facility in Baltimore which was in some way connected to the Space Race. I will say no more as I might be accused of committing a "spoiler".

Colin.
