The first episode of the "Outer Limits" had this early '60's radio station with vinyl and turntables:

I watched Abbott and Costello's 1942 movie WHO DONE IT and there were 3 record players in it (I believe they had 78s on it but im not sure)

I can't find or get a screencap, but there is a scene in Darren Aronofsky's "Requiem For A Dream" that shows three of the main characters playing records.

If it counts, I also seem to recall a scene in "Bram Stoker's Dracula" where Winona Ryder's character was operating what I assume was a Victrola phonograph.

This BSR vinyl grinder in the Inspector Morse "prequel" set in 1965.

A Garrard turntable (possibly a 55B from the counterweight) and Scott 300C receiver in the 1971 movie "Company of Killers". I like the way they stored the lp's in a wire rack without the sleeves and jackets.

In Gremlins, I am sure there is a scene where the gremlins start up a record player with a Christmas LP on it?

In one of the earlier episodes some tapes for R2R have been also mentioned (the "old" Specter had some jam sessions onto them IIRC).

Unlike the old movies, the new references in the modern movies are clearly "paid advertisements" or "returned services" to music industry. In 4 seasons the "audiophile" Harvey listens only once to his toy, and there are references to LPs in only 2 episodes. The LP-wall is not always shown in many episodes. The balls collection is shown much more

@ Ghitulescu

Interesting point of view...! However, I'm not that convinced that the LP references were meant to place a product or something like that.

I think that adding the LP detail to the ''Harvey Specter'' character was only to make his entire aura more credible. His job, his firm, his acquaintances (especially the NBA ones) are special, so the ''Mr. Special'' character could profit from the association with once-obsolete-now-exquisite music records.

I don't perceive him being audiophile, but having a need for listening records in his office when he's under pressure.
