Old Hollywood thinks the world is full of morons when they use this stuff
for props - and a good percentage is. I guess we all have to remember that
it isn't a documentary, just entertainment and the parts are props for
others to ooh-ahh over.

Just got back from seeing the Royal Tenenbaums. There are a number of
scenes that take place in Chas Tenenbaum's (Ben Stiller) office where he
still has the computer he used 22 yrs. before (1978) as a young
financial whiz. It appears to be a Zenith Z-110 and CRT attaced to -
get this - an Apple 5 1/4" external floppy drive! While at least
temporally close, the configuration isn't.
