Reelspin All these years I've watched the movie Sixteen Candles and......

..... I never noticed the Dragon! I like how they had it on manual cal on ZX and level setting to populate the signal meters for that "extra" lighting effect. I assume they did not kill it, the top deck seems to have the damage. Bet they cleaned it up and sold it!!!

May have been covered before....just spotted it.

Very neat, and good observation! Now I have to find the movie and see what scene that's in...

Just after the party disaster at Jake's, before Jake finds Farmer Ted under the coffee table.

I can't watch any film these days without looking for scenes featuring vintage analog gear ... maybe it might make a good thread!

I used to cringe whenever I saw that scene.
It was only years later that I noticed that the Nak was left unharmed!

Well that's bizarre ... I am watching "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (... again!) and then during the scene where Rooney rings the doorbell you get a full screen view of a 1983-84 Maxell XLII (no idea what it is being played in though).

... the bizarre bit is looking at the back of the DVD the film is directed by John Hughes who also directed "Sixteen Candles", which is also mentioned on the sleeve.

That's the 80s and the electronics craze for ya......it may be that John Hughes was a gear guy, but I think it's more of the 80s thing. The movie "Risky Business" comes to mind, as well as "9 1/2 weeks", and "The Legend of Billie Jean", just to name a few!!

Tell me about it ... over the last few years I have been picking up loads of films from the '80s and it's great looking at the all the hardware ...

Ferris was '86 and then I was 18 and just leaving school. Indelible memories!

... or the Nak RX505 on "Nine 1/2 Weeks"... Of course, Kim Basinger was also something nice to look at!

Yes, that was her prime! The years have taken their toll, unfortunately.
