I finally watched the finale of ‘Person of Interest‘. Of course there were a couple of important phone shots that I recorded for posterity. I’m going to miss this show…

Woody Allen pretends to make a phone call in the tv series ‘Crisis in six scenes‘ and in the  New Year’s day ‘Sherlock‘ episode there is a classic London scene with a phone box…

This was a recent episode from ‘Arrow’ set in the USA. So why is there a classic UK red phone box in the background?

and a classic movie –  ‘The Apartment’.

New York City, USA

In New York we went to the Intrepid Museum which has a submarine on site. There are loads of phones scattered throughout the sub and they had an example of a sonar phone. So not phone boxes as such but still…

A recent show set back in the 1960s – ‘11.22.63‘. Here we see the phone box seconds before it gets demolished in a car crash…

And yet another from ‘Person of Interest’ . This show has been great in presenting new ways to use the phone. This one gets bricked up behind a wall and still manages to work years later…

Mojave Phone Booth

I listen to a podcast called ‘99% Invisible’. It’s an American series I have been onto for a couple of years – although I only listen in spasmodically.  Podcast no. 202 is title ‘Mojave Phone Booth’ . Cool.

It has led me to a movie I didn’t know about ‘Mojave Phone Booth’ (2006) and the Wikipedia page on the artefact itself – you guessed it, a phone box in the Mojave desert.

This goes a long way to proving that I am not alone in my fascination for phone boxes.

 

Fargo 2

The second Fargo TV series (wonderful) showed us a few phone shots and one box in particular got a lot of use:
