: At The Movies: Another Telechron Sighting
: RFBIII August 27, 2008, 04:23:41 PM
Attached are screen shots from the great four star comedy The More The Merrier.  Jean Arthur's alarm clock is a 7H117 Reporter, in ivory.

In the scenes where the clock is shown the second hand is moving!  ;D

Enjoy!  Watch the movie sometime.  It boasts the great Jean Arthur, the always solid Joel McCrea, and the delightful Charles Coburn (who won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for this role).

Wow!  Nice pics. :o  Are you viewing the movies on your PC's DVD player and doing a print screen?

I had a crush on Jean Arthur since Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

Pappy,

I used VLC as a player for the DVD on my PC and did a screen shot at the appropriate moment.  From there I had to use my trusty old Paint Shop Pro to drop the colors from True Color to 256 colors to get the byte size down, and then saved the image as a .gif.

Jean Arthur has long been on my short list of favorite actresses.  What would Jefferson Smith have done without Clarissa in Mr. Smith Goes To Washington?

Just sighted this clock in the Bogart movie "Dead Reckoning",1947, in a hotel lobby set. Reckon it may be a Telechron?

Matt, you wouldn't know what happened to Louie's body, would you?
: Re: At The Movies: Another Telechron Sighting
: HobieSport September 02, 2009, 11:26:42 AM
Ah; Thanks Lenny; I didn't see that Pappy had already noticed the clock in the other (TV) thread.
Pappy, I thought Louies' body was in the trunk of the car during the crash. I assume it must have been discovered... But this is never mentioned, is it? A rather aggravating little loose plot thread...
One thing I notice about the great Bogart movies (Maltese Falcon, To Have and Have not, Big Sleep, Casablanca, Sierra Madre, Key Largo etc.): Not enough clocks!

The "Dead Reckoning" clock is very similar to my 1H1308, but I think the movie clock is an earlier version, and it's
 probably bigger than 8".  A check of the commercial clocks on the main site shows that it appears to be from the
 1H5/1H9 series.

P.S. (Later). Whoops, sorry, pardon my redundancy. I just saw Pappy's post in the other topic.

In a recent episode of NCIS entitled "Twisted Sister" one of the agents who works under Mark Harmon's character, had a GE 'Ballard' or a 'New Ballard' on his desk at home. The clock, which was in beautiful condition, was real surprising to see on the show.

There is a Ballard (or New Ballard) that shows up frequently on the sets of the British series "Heartbeat." I don't know if anyone here watches this series about the quirky folks who live in the fictional towns surrounding Ashfordly Estate in Yorkshire, but it is something I look forward to every week.

Spotted a 356 "Tudor" in The Public Eye last night.  It's in a long pan of Nabler's office toward the end of the film.  I'd show you the pic but I watched it on LASERDISC!. 

I first saw the Public Eye in 1992 when it came out.  I really, really liked it.  It's become forgotten now for some reason because it hasn't been released on DVD or vice-versa.  I watched it again for the first time in 17  years thanks to my new, old Pioneer laserdisc player.  (Maybe I should feature it vintage appliances.)  Laserdiscs are neat, "old" technology.

Anyway, if you get a chance, see the Public Eye.  I liked it as well last night as I did when I first saw it.  (That never happens, does it?)  I'm sure it's Joe Pesci's best film.

A laserdisc???  I started to chuckle...until I remembered the box of 8-track tapes from my folks place that I gave away to some ole prospector last year...and then there's our teenage daughters who are always giving me grief about my cassette player out in the garage...with a nearby tape stack of George Jones, Merle Haggard, Roy Rogers, well...that list goes on for awhile...  Papabear...why don't you download your "old timer" music from iTunes and listen to them on an iPod....looky here you young  whippersnappers...while I'll have you know when I was a youngster, I remember cranking the arm on yer great-grandma's Victrola so’s I could listen to her Fred Astaire records....dancing cheek to cheek…now those were the days!  8)

Wow - I'm pretty sure I might own that actual green 700 on the top shelf! I bought it from an LA seller and it has a bar coded catalogue label on the back stating "20th century Props" etc. This made me think it was from a studio prop collection... It has the yellow dial (I've been told most green 700's had white dials so that makes it at least somewhat unique if true) plus it is missing all trim pieces - even both the thin upright side pieces which are "never" missing. The 6 is badly faded and the hour and minute hands hands are in exactly the same position as per the still shot from the movie. I bet the second hand is bang on the 11 o'clock position too like mine.  Gonna have to get that movie out now!

I'm sure most of you will recall having seen it before....  :-*

I asked the question of the seller and he has confirmed that my clock came from the 20th Century Props Auction and that they supplied those clocks as a set props for the Post Grad movie.  Indeed it is the very same clock....

Very sad story behind the demise of 20th Centuary Props though.  Heartbreaking for Harvey.

Yeah, it is actually pretty good. It really captures what society was like in 1960 with everybody smoking everywhere, executives with fully stocked liquor cabinets in their offices and mistresses on the side, the thinly veiled racism and anti-Semitism, and what really went on behind closed doors in that carefully cultivated façade of 1950s upper middle class suburban bliss. So I can certainly why some people would feel like they need to take a shower after watching it.

Caught Rango over the weekend. A bit too deep and dark for my 5 year old, but her mom and I thought it not too bad for a computer animated lizard Western  – chock full of cinematic allusions - Chinatown, Shane, The Quick and the Dead, etc. Most intriguing detail – town square clock tower in critter-occupied ghost town “Dirt,” where the action takes place, features a repurposed wall clock prominently displaying….you guessed it: the “Telechron” logo!  A sort of 108-ish model. Seems there’s a fan on the design team at Industrial Light and Magic.

I vaguely remember an episode of "The Mentalist" where Patrick Jane is up to his old trick of walking around in a home that the 'CDU' is visiting touching things, taking them down off shelves and examining them - all with the object of rattling the people being interviewed (they have to follow him around with their eyes anxiously expecting him to drop something valuable). In one episode it seems to me that he goes to a mantelpiece and picks up either a 711 or AB-712 and examines it. However it happened so quickly I was unable to be sure of what it was that I saw.

Did anyone else see this one?

I didnt see this in a movie but back in Feb.

(I felt weird taking pictures with a camara phone of a box in walmart.) *^o

(Pappys 711 post reminded me I had for got to post it under sightings)

Several years ago Pottery Barn sold Chinese-produced knockoffs of the 7H140 Delegate and the 71X series. Looks like the clock in the pic is one of the knockoffs. But that does go to show the timelessness of the designs, that they would be reproduced and sold 60-80 years after the originals. :)

 @^? @^? @^?  wow.. a great B&W flick.. but a shocking fun Telechron treat:  1935's "The Star of Midnight" with William Powell and Ginger Rogers.  I tape the Sat night late TCM B&W films - usually pretty good.. woke up and  (%$

About 1 minute in, the 2nd scene is a full frame closeup of the 530 Nottingham !!  What a thrill !   It has 2 scenes, almost a full-frame picture, and then a 2nd a bit backgroun on the table.  But the fun continues..  with a 453 Denmore in Powell's kitchen, and (a bit more guessing here.. you help me out...) a 7H83 Mentor alarm clock on Powell's night stand.. kinda wonder if these were Powell favorites or the prop guys...  The scene on the Nottingham is so long, and so good, you can see its second hand move for 4 seconds..

Ah, Kid! trust you to have spotted it before I did!

I was also quite disappointed in the movie. It felt as if the production people were not sure which direction they wanted the movie to go. It was frustrating to watch. And I really wished they had touched on the series of barn storming wars between 'Irish' Mikey Ward and Arturo 'Thunder' Gatti. Every one of their matches was declared "fight of the year" by Ring magazine.

I asked the question of the seller and he has confirmed that my clock came from the 20th Century Props Auction and that they supplied those clocks as a set props for the Post Grad movie.  Indeed it is the very same clock....

Very sad story behind the demise of 20th Centuary Props though.  Heartbreaking for Harvey.
http://www.screenhead.com/reviews/20th-century-props-closing-due-to-rapidly-changing-hollywood/

Here's where it gets weird....

- I was in LA last week and had an hour to spare before our flight.
- Googled "Art Deco LA" and came up with "Harvey's on Beverly"
- It's close to our hotel so we head down there for a look.
- It's a fantastic place and we get a guided tour by Harvey Schwartz who turns out to be an absolute gentleman and the owner.
- Get talking about stuff and i compliment him on some of the Telechrons, Lawsons, Hammonds & Jeffersons he has on display.
- He asks if I'm a clock guy. I tell him "a little" and go on to tell him about my favourite green 700 which i purchased from someone in LA (see above).
- Without missing a beat Harvey says "yeah - I remember that one well". "I was 20th Centuary Props".  FMD - i'm talking to the guy who i bought this clock from how many years ago on eBay?...
- How many planets aligned for this to occur?
- Small world but a really cool thing to happen :)

It's a Telechron, from the style of the numbers and the shape of the hands.  Guess they didn't want any "product placement" (those were the days!).  G.E. clocks seem to have had their own distinct number style and hand shape.  Good eye spotting the Airlux!  For four decades I have seen this movie and never noticed those clocks!

It was not a Telechron - but a Westclox "Bantam" (1949) in the cabin of an ocean liner plays an extensive part near the end of A Blueprint For Murder (1953) with Jean Peters and Joseph Cotten.  One of the rare cases of a movie focusing directly and repeatedly on an old electric clock.

Mate - that's a Lawson Model P40 Style 304 "Zephyr".
Case was designed in 1933 by KEM Weber and was originally known as the "Mayfair". It's believed the name was changed in 1937/38 to "Zephyr" when Lawson coined the advertising slogan ?Lawson Time-Table Time? and because of the style similarities with the famous Burlington Pioneer Zephyr train.
The one in the movie is the common antique finished copper case (or copper plated brass) There's also a chrome and black version (never seen one though), a rare solid copper (raw finish) and an uber rare Nickel plated version with gold trim.

Three of my absolute favourite non-telechrons.

The film is "Humoresque" (1946). Starring  Joan Crawford, John Garfield and Oscar Levant. A young Robert Blake has a principal part in the film too. This is absolutely my favorite Joan Crawford film. The music in this film is as enjoyable as the picture itself.
I wonder why the clock/timer on the right has the reset flag window off-set near the 8 o'clock position. Probably because a reset flag is unnecessary on a minute timer.

I'm not sure, but think that's a 1F312. The film is "Thicker Than Water" (1935). It's a Laurel & Hardy short subject comedy also starring Daphne Pollard and James Finlayson.  I'm guessing the clock was painted white to accommodate the scene which portrays a hospital.
In the scene, Stanley is visiting Ollie in the hospital after he was injured by his wife clunking him over the head with a frying pan. She was angry with Ollie after he drained their joint savings account, and paid $290.00 for a Grandfather clock he won at an auction.

I'm watching The More the Merrier tonight for about the 20th time - one of my all-time favourite films, and Jean Arthur is one of my favourite actresses.  I'd never noticed the alarm clock before tonight and immediately paused the DVD, grabbed my macbook and went through the 7-series in the war years til I found it.  I could've saved myself the time and effort by searching the forum for the info  :)

The More the Merrier is on youtube if anyone is interested in seeing it.  You can see the clock here at 3:03 and 3:31:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5pCTrzEsfg&index=3&list=PL32659A1B23567774

Attached are screen shots from the great four star comedy The More The Merrier.  Jean Arthur's alarm clock is a 7H117 Reporter, in ivory.

In the scenes where the clock is shown the second hand is moving!  ;D

Enjoy!  Watch the movie sometime.  It boasts the great Jean Arthur, the always solid Joel McCrea, and the delightful Charles Coburn (who won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for this role).

: Re: At The Movies: Another Telechron Sighting
: Bridget January 01, 2015, 09:51:14 AM
Well spotted!  I never noticed that!  Yes, the sweep hand had to be just so, as earlier in the film Arthur's character was going through the morning schedule with Coburn's character, timed right down to the minute, so they'd be up at 7 and out the door by 7:30.  For instance, as she tells him, her alarm goes off at 7, then at 7:01 she enters the bathroom while he goes to get the milk, then by 7:05 he's started the coffee, then 1 minute later she leaves the bathroom and a minute after that he enters the bathroom, etc.  Of course, the next morning he makes a complete hash of the schedule and drives her crazy  D%D

Not a movie, but this photo accompanies a New York Times opinion piece about Nancy Pelosi. It shows a 3H163 Swarthmore on the shelf behind Nancy in the Oval Office.

I'm not sure which one is less desirable.

I'll take the Swarthmore.  At least it can be set right.

I really like the Panorama.  Unquestionably one of my top 3 or 4 50's designs.

I never really cared much for the screaming 1950s styles, but I have had a 7H229 Replica on my end table for almost a week, and it is growing on me.  I still hate the model name though.

TCM Showed the George Pal 1950 film Destination Moon. The clock on board the rocket appears to be a GE branded clock that is built into the wall panel.  I guess with the clock fixed like that, the tattletale couldn't be reset.  I guess a red dot looked better in a color movie, anyway.

Saw a 5F50 this AM in Remember? with Greer Garson and Robert Taylor.  (I don't have Tivo so no screen cap.)

I bet it's the same Mirage that was in Double Wedding

Young Lew Ayres looks like Jack Lemon.  He should have gotten the girl.
