M.O.M.I in Astoria, NY
A model from the movie Blade Runner (1982).
A replica of Linda Blair used in The Exorcist (1973)
I wonder if it made a difference that you would be viewing the image backwards?
Sony Trinitron Television Receiver and Betamax Videotape Recorder, 1975. This is some super high tech stuff! This console was originally $2300, Betamax tapes were at least $15 and ran for one hour. Only a few were sold until 1977 when tape times were extended and major studio releases were more widely available...Don't you want to throw your flat screen away and get one of these! (kidding)
I find this Jerry Lewis Hand Puppet (1950) bizarre and slightly disturbing.
Dental plumper worn by Marlon Brando in The Godfather (1972). Designed and made by Dick Smith.
