I'm pretty sure there were about 3 different Telechron or GE wall clocks in the movie Zodiac.  But we never get close enough to see them well.  That's not the case with the lamp-less, sweep-less Clinton that appears about 71 minutes in.  (Good movie.   You should see it.)

What this country needs is a good $5 parts clock.

Telechrons in the Movies and TV

In the past year episodes of the 1950s TV police series San Francisco Beat (Also called The Lineup) have shown up on YouTube. Great views of old SF and old cars. There is a Telechron or GE clock in the first minute or so of this episode:

In the 1950 movie Young Man with a Horn starring Kirk Douglas, there is a clock that looks like a 4H55 Statesman on Lauren Bacall's nightstand. It shows up at least twice for a few seconds.

Re: At The Movies: Another Telechron Sighting - Escape in the Fog

There is a 1945 noir movie called (I think) Escape in the Fog in which the headquarters of the bad guys is in a clock shop in San Francisco Chinatown.  There are many clocks including a Telechron advertising clock visible in the first 15 minutes or so.  Again near the end, when the hero is about to be gassed inside the shop, there are many clocks, including a nice digital electric.

Saw what think was an Airman and an unknown, no crystal GE commercial clock in The Girl From Mexico.  Sorry, no screenshots, this was on TCM.

Lupe Velez was married to Johnny Weismuller and was another Hollywood overdose/suicide story.  Sad.
Ward Bond, who had to be about the busiest actor in Hollywood was unrecognizable as the Mexican wrestler.  He was the Samuel L. Jackson the of the 1940's.

It's not a movie, but I was scrolling through this article about the restoration of a rare 1960 Holiday House Geographic travel trailer, and while scrolling though the pictures saw a 3F51 Duke on the counter in the bathroom.

In the 1966 movie The Doomsday Flight there are various clocks including GE or Telechron wall clocks and 24 hour wall clocks. The most interesting though is a Jefferson Golden Hour that shows up many times including about 49.20, 1:02.13 and 1:06.13.
