    Interestingly, Phantom was contacted by Montgomery Pollack in May 2003 asking if we could provide a recorder for the movie - "We are working on a new film to be directed by Martin Scorcese, starring Leonardo DeCaprio. It is called "The Aviator" It is about Howard Hughes love of flight. There is a scene that has Hughes using a reel to reel tape recorder in 1947. The director has requested a Rangertone or a Magnecord, Magnetophon or a Ampex 200A. I need to purchase this items. Do you have or know of anybody who might have such an item. It needs to work and be in very good condition. I can be flexible in my timeline. I can use any reel to reel recorder from 1947-1950. If I cannot find such a beast we will just use a Webster wire recorder. Any information would be extremely helpful."  We came up with a Magnecord M30 & M33 and a PT6-AH. However they found the Brush which met their time period perfectly.

    Hi Martin,
    Here are the pictures attached. You can add these to the museum if you like. these are captured from a high def source. In the show the machine sits in a very old remote truck in what looks like for a radio or TV station with call letters KVWV. This appears to be a fake call sign. I could not find anything in Google to match any known stations west of the Mississippi. Inside in the background you can see an Altec amp, the same type used in film projection booths at this time period. I get the felling this machine was used in film sound production. It has locking reel spindles like you would find on a 16mm film projector. the locks are in the open position.
    Thanks, John Kuhn
