Hello Everyone! I noticed this last Christmas when watching It's a Wonderful Life -- in the scene where poor George Bailey has come hat-in-hand to Mr Potter to ask for a loan, it caught my eye that old Potter was using an Eversharp Skyline. Others have noticed this but I went the extra step of doing some screen captures to show it. It's unmistakeable, and funny enough the black-and-whiteness of it reminds me of one of my favorite old Sheaffer's ads. All I have to add is, say, that better be an Executive Skyline, what with all the money you have, Potter! Can anyone via the pics (or by going to the original source) actually identify the model and pattern? I fantasized that I saw longitudinal stripes on the cap, which looks plastic to me... so I guess there's a chance it could be an Executive, since that size only came with plastic caps...
My love of snail mail should be no surprise to me (although sometimes it is) because all my life when watching a film that somehow included Letters or Snail Mail my little ears would perk up. In the digital age, more than ever I find films that include Snail Mail absolutely enchanting! The more snail mail is written into the storyline, the more captivated I become. This thread is for Film only. (I’ve made a separate one for books). I’m hoping the members of FPN will help compile a list of Films that include Letters or Snail Mail. Thanks in advance for adding to the list!
Just got back from seeing Mr Holmes starring Ian McKellen. Wonderful movie. I mention it here because he does a lot of writing with a black fountain pen. I caught quite a few glimpses of it but was unable to determine the brand. It was black and had 2 or 3 gold rings around the top pat of the pen. It seems to be long and was perhaps a bit on the thin side. It might have been a dip pen but it was hard to tell. Did anyone happen to catch the make of that pen?
