HI- watched "One flew over the Cuckoo's nest" (again), every time I have seen the record player that's in the nurses office playing 45's, I have wondered what kind it is.

At first glanvce, I thought it was a RCA 45 model, but last night I spied an emblem on it that looks like it could have been a Telefunken unit. It has the 45 only spindle, but it also had 4 push button switches on the top right side.

Anyone know the make~model for sure ?

Looks like I want one now, He He He..

Dennis.

Huh...I didn't notice that.
Probably because I wasn't into record players the last time
I saw the movie.

"Cuckoo" was on AMC last night...great movie, But I didn't
watch it. The last part and ending make me mad :evil:
and sad. :(
It was filmed at the Oregon State Hospital in Salem.

Author Ken Kesey lived nearby here in Pleasant Hill, Or.
They have a bronze statue of him sitting on a bench here in
downtown Eugene reading to children - he was also known for
his famous tale of a NW Timber Family -"Sometimes a Great
Notion".
It too was made into a motion picture, starring Henry Fonda
as the family's patriarch.

You can see it at the 8 second mark in this trailer:

Looks German to me but I don't recognize it.

I work right around the corner from that hospital here in Salem. They tore most of it down and rebuilt it. I think they kept one of the original buildings. Sometimes they let some of the low risk patients walk around. I've had a few wander down to where I work. Makes the day interesting.....

Looks like a Telefunken to me. The logo is easily visible, and Telefunken's changers did have push buttons.

Thats's It !!

I watched it last night on AMC also. I never really thought abought it before, as you only see it for a few seconds in the film.

Now I really want one of those players. Probably be a tough one to find.

The movie was supposed to be set in 1963, so that probably was a correct model for that time period I guess.

Thanks for the photo !

Dennis.

It is an ELAC (Miracord), similar to this one.

Telefunken turntable--the diamond shaped logo. And you can magnify it on the ebay pic--Telefunken. Cute machine!

Huh...confusing. :? Could it possibly be a Telefunken spindle
on a ELAC Record Player ? The logo on top of the spindle
has the characteristic Telefunken Logo with the square within
the triangle
; however the ELAC Logo does not...
and that looks like the logo on the record player itself
does not. Huh. :?

I worked in a unit like that right after Nursing school in 1996. Never a boring day, but some scary ones

I'll bet ! :o
I, at one time thought of going into that line of work as I
was always fascinated with human psychology, and felt
eminently qualified from years of dealing with nutcases in
my own family. :lol: Probably most families have at least one. :roll:

Once and for all, this is the old ELAC logo, which appears on the changer in question, above the name "ELECTROACOUSTIC", which is what ELAC stands for. QED

During my training, I had to rotate through a locked VA psych ward..... There was a record player in the rec room - but only 1 LP - believe it or not, it was Boots Randolph "Yackety Sax" (aka Benny Hill theme song) and it played non-stop. If you weren't nuts before staying there - you'd sure be afterwards.....
