Quiz the seventy-sixth: Typecasting (Part one)

Typewriters. Yet another piece of technology that younger generations today know nothing of. I learned to type on an old manual Underwood, with the bell that rang as you approached the end of a line and the long, slender silver arm of a carriage return. I remember the keys jamming together and the ribbon becoming tangled. I remember the novelty of “liquid paper.”

But enough reminiscing. On to this week’s quiz, showing these antiques being employed in some movies I leave it to you with long memories to identify.

      Yes, I heard that!

      I had a friend in university who collected them as well. They seem kind of bulky to me to be a good collectible. I collect bookmarks. Much easier.
