Hi all, I would expect to encounter really vintage stands as set props in movie scenes evoking a lone scientist in the laboratory, 19th century plot times.
But I just encountered my Nikon-Labophot Pol stand in a recent "B" movie with major film stars! There my stand 'acts scientific' as the main set prop in a fleeting scene of this recent movie: "Limitless"!
Has anyone else encountered one of their stands 'in the movies', or on the tellie? Charlie Guevara whose work horse stand is miffed that the trinoc vertical tube in not configured with equipment, but simply left open to collect dust and fibers in the movie 'it stars in'. Perhaps seven seconds of main prop glory in the movie: "Limitless"...my stand pouts now as it at bench has no bestboy, no main grip, only a cigar box of optics.
I can't say I've seen mine (BH2), but my favorite microscope scene ever was in one of the early episodes of the Walking Dead. In this episode, they went to the CDC facility in Atlanta. The place was a money-is-no-object, technological tour de force. But the sole surviving scientist had an old gray American Optical scope. As he was peering into the oculars, you could clearly see that there were no objectives on the scope!
