Cameras in the Movies / TV / Media If you are a photographer, it's difficult not to appreciate movies too. In this forum you can discuss movies, as well as the cameras used in them. What camera used in what film / TV show etc has long been a topic of discussion at RFF. Whether the Exakta and 400mm Kilfitt lens in Hitchcock's Rear Window or the Nikons in Eastwood's Bridges of Madison County, cameras are tools which reflect the time and technology of the film.

No, that’s Rex Harrison and he doesn’t have a camera.

That's actually not Rex Harrison. Rex Harrison played Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady, the gentleman in the photo with Audrey Hepburn is Wilfrid Hyde-White, who played Colonel Pickering. Lovely shot though, of a very lovely lady.

Best,

Frankie's House (1992). A four-part British-Australian TV miniseries based on the biography of British photographer Tim Page, especially focusing on his relationship with Sean Flynn -the son of Errol Flynn- during the Vietnam War [Source: Wikipedia].

https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...nkie%27s+house

The same characters feature prominently in Michael Herr's, 'Dispatches' (1977), which introduced readers to the experiences of soldiers in the Vietnam War. Eventually, Herr worked on the narration for the movie 'Apocalypse Now' and co-wrote the screenplay for the movie 'Full Metal Jacket' and several scenes and dialogue mentioned in the book were used in those movies [Source: Wikipedia].


Cheers, OtL

Not a camera in a movie, but I noticed this book cover:



I haven't read the book so I don't know how well (or poorly) this represents anything in the novel.

errr.........no that's not Rex Harrison. It's his co-star Wilfred Hyde White.

This is Rex Harrison

I think so. But I've not owned one, yet, so I'm not 100% certain.

Terry Thomas carrying a Corfield Periflex 2, Maybe? , in the movie "The Mouse On The Moon".
(And, yes I may have spent too much time watching mediocre 60s comedy movies yesterday. )

The new Netflix series "Tales from the Loop" a sort of quantum level sci-fi set in rural Ohio (but actually shot in Canada) features a Leica M2 and what looks like a v1 35mm Summicron. The camera is seen throughout the last episode, first on the kid's grandmother in the opening scenes, and then later the young kid uses it.
