columbo pilot

Watching a favorite old TV series, in this case Columbo, the pilot from 1968.

I like to notice trivial details, like the preponderance of IBM Selectric typewriters and the make and model of the telephones.

In this scene I was flinching because the actor was dialing a telephone with a pencil, which is bad form. In another scene, somebody was dialing the phone with their finger but turning the dial back rather than releasing it at the finger stop. Bad, bad, bad. lol

I also noticed the thick blanket of smog over Los Angeles in other scenes.
