Not much help -- I fed it into Photoshop and applied massive levels (the /lightest/ tone in that image is 50%) and unsharp masking...

 

Unfortunately, the nib is imprint-side down, and the pocket clip is on the side. Only thing I brought out is what appears to be a greenish visualated section between the nib and section trim ring, with an actual black section at the nib end.

I can’t help you with your request, but you might be glad to know that there is a nine year-old thread on this very forum completely devoted to fountain pens in movies and TV. I’ve attached the link, and I hope you enjoy.

Hmmmm... the cap reminds me of a Cross Pen... looks a little like a Townsend? Not exactly, but that's all that came to mind for me.

Clip doesn't work. The gold band above the section is what's confusing me the most about this pen. I don't remember any pen of the era with that pattern.

True. I am at a loss for the moment. I'll keep looking.

I'm betting vintage Montblanc.
