One Man's Bizarre Obsession With Very Old Writing Machines.
Aw yeah - The Night Stalker. I loved that show, except for all the yelling between him and his editor. Darren McGavin ruled. (:
Royal. The chrome card holder/guides are exactly like on my Royal KMG.
Ah, nice. You see KMGs in tons of movies from the '50s on. I had a KMH (as pictured in my avatar; actually based my pen name on that typewriter).
Great way to open a TV show. I like the way he tossed his hat onto the hat stand and missed!
Yep, a Royal would make sense. I wish I had a better look. I'm always checking out old movies and TV shows to see what they're typing with.
Royal QDL. - the first version that has the space bar that sits over the frame.
I think it's a big (standard) machine, and the vertical buttons for setting and clearing tab stops indicate a Royal. Great dramatic music and I love the narration at the end, too! An excellent example of the romance of typewriting.
