At  3:04'' into the film there is a chap holding a fountain pen. Could it be a Pelikan?

Obviously a lever filler for those who can't see it.

Yes, and a pre-restriction on gold use model. The nib being gold and not steel. Great color, I hope it survived the last seventy years.with a little research you could pinpoint it's year of production.

Did Pelikan make a lever filler like that? I'm only familiar with their piston fillers...

I don't see a nib, gold or silver, just a black "nosecone". I didn't see a lever either, just a shiny MOP chip in the celluloid.  I think it's a marbled Tintenkuli, or knock-off (note the ring below the black turning knob).

Agreed, I cannot see a lever. Either a button or piston filler. The barrel looks a little too marbled to be a Pelikan. Looking closer I think it is a piston filler without its cap.
