We lent them other pens, but the footage -- not the pens -- ended up on the cutting room floor. We sent 3 pens, one for usage, one in case of an emergency, and one so that the actor could keep one if he liked."
    Thanks so much for posting it. I hope Benedict Cumberbatch enjoyed his pen...

    I use the old fashioned way: I pause the scene on TV, wait a couple of seconds so the progress bar disappears and then I take a picture with my iPhone. Sometimes, if I'm not directly in front of the TV the dialog box will appear tilted (see the pictures in post #646 above). After that I'll crop the image to a manageable size using Preview.

    And there's Burton Giliam as Floyd, the desk clerk, with that face that reminds me of Moe in the Pep Boys logo.



    From IMBd bio: Had been a firefighter for 14 years with the Dallas (TX) fire Department when he read in a local newspaper that a Hollywood film company will holding auditions for extras to be in a film starring Ryan O'Neal that was to shoot in the area. He went to the audition jut hoping to make a few extra bucks and, as he put it, "maybe meet some movie stars". The film was Paper Moon (1973) and Gilliam impressed the producers so much that instead of an "extra" part, he was given a featured role as Floyd the Desk Clerk. After finishing the film, he returned to his job in Dallas. Not long afterwards he was contacted by Mel Brooks, who had seen his performance in "Paper Moon" and wanted him for a role in a western comedy he was getting ready to make. The film was Blazing Saddles (1974) and Gilliam got the role he is best remembered for--that of Slim Pickens' dimwitted henchman Lyle.

    If it's not a genuine sign, it's a good reproduction.

    Oops! A Nazi Wehrmacht Colonel's modern cigar-shaped Montblanc Meisterstuck 14x being used by him to sign a construction contract in 1940 or '41 Denmark, before that pen design appeared post-war in 1949. Seaside Hotel a/k/a Badehotellet, Season 8, Episode 5. Well, the Danish series is a comedy despite the tragic subject-matter.
