    In Renfield, the title character’s fountain pen runs out of ink, so he borrows a ballpoint

    which later becomes a weapon.

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 4 episode 20.

    Nine-Nine.jpg

    Holt: Gina, as you know, my fountain pen is being re-nibbed in Germany.
    Gina: Yes, it’s all no one is talking about.



    There's a meme too.
    https://getyarn.io/yarn-clip/e9260a5...0-a9f07c036178

    But the question is: Was Holt’s pen a Lamy, a Montblanc, a Pelikan, or something else?

    The fourth episode of The Buccaneers, set in the 1870s, features a heartfelt declaration in an English country house with Italian ink from a Herbin-like bottle.

    A familiar pen brand appears in the end credits of Lupin season 3.

    Before rewatching to find any overlooked writing instruments, I tried Google.
    It turns out there’s a French clothing retailer with the same name, so — false alarm.

    As I am an inveterate optimist I did a search in the Bexley French retailer site and all I got was:

    From the 2022 version of "All Quiet on the Western Front", Daniel Bruhl who plays a German diplomat holds a fountain pen. As in other WWI movies, a dip pen or a slender Waterman would have been more appropriate.

    Crimson Peak is a wonderful 2015 film by Guillermo del Toro about certain events that take place in 1901. Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) is an aspiring writer who marries the suave baronet Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston) who lives in a decrepit mansion with his sister Lucille (Jessica Chastain). Even though at that time most people would have been using dip pens, the fact that the film deals with wealthy individuals gives way to suspension of disbelief with some of the many scenes in which fountain pens are portrayed:

    At first, our heroine uses a clip-less black pen to write her stories, which could have been a Waterman or Mabie Todd:

    Naturally at this point in time using a fountain pen would many times result in inky fingers (and forehead):

    inky_fingers.jpg

    Our heroine's father gives her a golden fountain pen, although what she really wanted was a typewriter:

    YOL_gold_pen.jpg

    Somebody on Reddit identified it as a Yard-o-Led Viceroy in Barley. This pen turns out to be an important plot device which I will not reveal so as not to ruin the surprise.

    I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the repeated appearance of a Montblanc 149 in the Netflix adaptation "Ripley". It ends up being a minor character, as many of the desk staff and bank clerks comment "Bella penna!"

    I guessed there would be pens in Ripley but haven’t got around to watching it yet.

    After watching 3 Body Problem on Netflix, the Tencent version Three-Body feels like a slog. Normally I have no problem with leisurely pacing or subtitles (actively seek them out, in fact). Here I gave up after a couple of episodes and tried a ‘disembiggened’ fan-edit that whittles the original 22 hours down to six.

    Even in a cut-down form, the Tencent show takes a more didactic approach, and seems quite self-aware about it.ThreeBody-01.jpg

    ThreeBody-02.jpg
    Nevertheless, I appreciated the fuller explanation of some aspects of the story that whizzed by in the Netflix show.

    Anyway, several fountain pens appear:

    Something like a Type 28 pen (apart from the section?) is in general use at Red Coast base.

    There may be more pens to spot in the full-length version. I’ll leave that to others.
