Did anyone ever notice this [in The Shape of Water]?
I have not seen the film yet, but how could we miss that classic Cold War rig?! Very cool–thanks for sharing, Dan!
I’ll add this post to our archive of radios in film.

The Academy Award for Best Picture of 2018 goes to Guillermo de Toro’s “The Shape of Water.”
This celebrated shortwave radio appears several times in the move as a prop for the Cold War-era control room of Richard Strickland (played by Michael Shannon).
Oh what a celebrated shortwave radio indeed! How could it be a Cold War without this benchmark boat anchor?!? Thanks for this fantastic addition to to our growing archive of radios in film, Dan!
Post readers: Anyone recognize or–better yet–own this amazing machine? Please comment!
