Dual in the movies

Post by T68 » 30 May 2019 20:31

Just watched the movie Bumblebee with my son. Quite a decent flick, actually. And there's an emotional scene where the main character plays her dead father's favourite song on a beat up old Dual 504.

Have you spotted a Dual on the big screen?

Not the big screen, but the recent Netflix movie "Our House" features a Dual turntable in the opening scene and later in the movie.

I am sure in Sex in the City, the Mr Big character ran a Dual 505.

There was a Dual in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, or at least a very nice box for one, partly open, shown prominently, in Control's apartment after Oldman and Cumberbatch's characters were going through his stuff for clues after control's death. Not sure about the actual model number but I remember thinking it might be a little new for the exact era. But maybe not.

Not on the big screen, but there's a nice old 510 in this Rodrigo Y Gabriela video at 1:44...
