Yes, it's that time again...  I'll kick it off.  The brief satellite scenes in the movie, "Enemy of the State," are accompanied by morse code sending... wait for it..... CQ CQ!   (Also, one of the bad guys contacts a security agency on 7.210 MHz...) 

Good stuff!  73   Grin

Not CW and some of you may already know this, but in one particular Star Wars scene the CHU Canada time signal pips can be heard.

I have heard a lot of both RTTY and Amtor mode A in a lot of movies.  Apparently stock noise background fill for movie makers.

On the PBS Masterpiece Mysteries series "Endeavour" you can hear the title characters last name being spelled out in Morse code during the end theme.  The characters last name is, of course, Morse.

Not exactly CW but still interesting.

Apparently, the aliens could decode every coding method that man could devise. They understood every language. Huh But they could not decode CW.  Riiiight.  Roll Eyes

"The Dogs of War" - Tom Berenger's character send code from the ship to coordinate the beach landing.

Not CW, but in the series "The Killing" on one episode the base station 'police radio' is actually an Amateur rig on 14 MHZ.

  The House on 92nd Street has a few scenes with operators using bug or straight key.  Full movie is on Youtube.

It was in Russian Morse. Quite different from English Morse.
