Watching the movie Red Ball Express and saw a few Coleman lanterns including an Early Bighat, sitting behind Sydney Poitiers character in one scene.

Here is one scene clip.

My son is seven, he is more into sports than movies. Thank goodness. The movies he does watch are more along the lines of John Wayne.

I don't know how many times I watched My Cousin Vinny before noticing the 200A. Marisa Tomei just melts my butter.

We watched several old b&w horror flicks over the weekend. "The Mummy" had several scenes with 220B lanterns being used. Didn't get a pic of that scene but here's what the outdoor theatre looked like that night. Can you guess which movie we're watching here?

Just finished watching all 57 episodes of Tour of Duty. Several episodes were in supply areas where the lanterns were thicker than flies on an outhouse. Almost every episode has at least one milspec. Some like the supply depot shots have lots of big hats too. This weekend I start China Beach. I'll let you know what I see.

Fury with Brad Pitt featured a 520 stove in one scene and a BX lantern in another. Not a big WWII history buff but it was an impressively realistic movie.

more like a 220F as it has dual mantles and the short vent.

you can see a lot of suitcase stoves all through the series. they are stacked in the store room. the Korean hooches all seem to have one to heat their water on.
Me TV is playing the series and I noticed that there are fewer GPA lanterns as the show goes by and every time the generator fails they seem to have some kind of super bright battery operated "flashlight" to continue to operate on patients.

Ha! Shows what you know. There were no supermarket tabloids when they were married. Heck,
there were no supermarkets, either.
I remember seeing the Hunchback movie when I was a kid. Then the Bride of Frankenstein later. Mom
was the one that told me the monster lady was married to the hunchback. Hmmm. All those years
ago and I still remember that, but don't recall what I had for supper last night.

Was just scanning the channels and came across Gorillas in the Mist. Never watched it, but the first thing I noticed was a lantern. Then two lanterns. Not sure what they are, but they look cool.

I recently saw an Andy Griffith episode where Goober got lost in a cave but he had a lantern. It dimmed, he ran to it and pumped the heck out of it but it went out. Being lost underground, this was his last bit of comfort. He was so bummed. Nothing left to do so he said his prayers and went to sleep. I thought it was pretty funny.

Just spotted this in Night of the Living Dead. What a great flick for being so low budget yet entertaining.

I watched Frankenstein last night on Halloween. There are lots of Coleman lanterns. I don't know exactly what they are, but the have the mica globes with the lighting ports. The movie was released in 1931. Even the angry mobs at the end have a number of lanterns in addition to the many torches. Somehow the lanterns look more dramatic in black and white.

I borrowed this still:

Oh man! The lantern on the left in the Frankenstein picture is a Tures!!!! (Made in Milwaukee, Wi)

The other one looks like a Quicklite.

What about "It's a Wonderful Life"? There's a couple lanterns lighting their new home, as I recall.

I have enjoyed watching the first season of the TV show Gotham. The series is built around Jim Gordon, and Bruce Wayne is a young teenager. In one episode, Bruce hikes in the woods alone and falls down a hill, twisting an ankle or something. After nightfall, he manages to make a splint and struggle up the hillside, only to find Alfred waiting for him at the top, sitting by a campfire and with a Coleman.

The Woods 2.JPG


BTW, this version of Alfred is quite different and in my opinion well done.

Just watched The Flying Leathernecks, staring John Wayne, last night. There are two or three scenes with what appears to be 242s and another with a Dietz Monarch wickie. In one scene, an MP confronts a scrounging Marine line chief about a couple of tents and "10 Coleman lanterns" that came up missing from another unit.

I don't know how to do a screen shot. 1 hour 10 minutes and 14 seconds into the movie is a Coleman lantern and a couple of seconds later a Coleman stove.
