Sorry, no stills, and no intention of providing any.:wink2: And I'll interpret "fancy" to mean fountain or dip pens.

I do watch a lot of older movies where fountain pens are common, but I've never identified a specific one. It's somewhat interesting to see the actors matter-of-factly using the normal artifacts of their time, but cataloging all the instances doesn't seem to have much point.

Then there are modern period films. I recall a scene in The King's Speech (2010) where the dying King George V needs to sign a delegation of authority, and we see a very luxurious looking gold-nibbed fountain pen from his point of view. No idea what it was.

It's more interesting to me to see a fountain pen being portrayed in our ballpoint era. There's a scene in Casino (1995) where Joe Pesci's character rebukes a bar patron's boorish behavior by stabbing him repeatedly with a fountain pen. That's got to be bad for the nib, but it wasn't his pen. Looked like a nice one, but again I can't say what it was.

One that I did identify with a fair amount of certainty was in The Grey (2011). Before Liam Neeson leaves on the ill fated flight that will strand him in the wilderness, we see him writing a letter with a Lamy Safari.

I have those, i will look for the scenes now.....
 
I wish I had the movie still, and I could be completely mis-remembering, but in the movie "Torn Curtain", Paul Newman uses a fountain pen to write with. In my imagination, I thought it could be a 51.

for Best Picture, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Best Director, and Best Writing & Screenplay), Professor Robert Nash (played by Russell Crowe...nominated for Best Actor), was awarded the Nobel Prize and was congratulated and honored with the 'Pen Ceremony'! :thumbsup:

I noticed a few MB's (especially the first Professor who gave up his MB [I believe it's a FP], but I don't recognize the other expensive models (maybe some of our members, gentleman and pen connoisseurs can 'chime in' here?).

I can only think of the scene in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" where Sean Connery shoots ink in the eye of a German soldier while he and Marcus are "in the belly of that iron beast". "Henry, don't you see? The pen! The pen is mightier than the sword!" :laugh:
