    These are fun as always. The first two movies, from 2011, seem to have done their homework: that looks like a Swedish-made Facit in “Girl,” and a late-’30s Royal in “Captain.”

  2. I’ve been wanting to see “Don’t Look Now,” the typewriter is extra incentive.

    I’m also into typewriter spotting in film, check this out.

    Glad I stumbled upon your blog, won’t be the last.


    • Wow–you have a great site! Kindred spirits!
      And Don’t Like Now is one of my favorites–although I had never really noticed that shot of the nun typing away busily.

  3. Thanks, Kevin! More kindred than you think; I’m also an academic, doing research in Religion & Film. Added Typecast to my Blog Roll.

    I’d really like to see that creepy typing nun scene.
