While watching Tin Tin, I noted an apparent historic inaccuracy.  While the "cartoon" movie appears to be set in the 1920's or 1930's, the renditions of the shipboard radios appear to be stylized radios of the 50's era.  Oops!  Keep your eye out for this in the movie as there are a couple of quick scenes of the radio room.

In another forum (amfone.net) someone mentioned the equipment in this movie and thought one piece of equipment might be a Collins 32V although he was not absolutely sure. It cracks me up to see some of the "radio abuse" that shows up in movies. I love it when you see a microphone plugged into the headphone jack of a Collins 75A4 or Hammurlund SP-600 as some unknowing actor pretends to make contact with the police/aircraft/coast guard or other such entity. The other thing that makes me laugh is when someone is using a transmitter/transceiver and as they are transmitting you hear static crashes, band noise, or phoney squeals and squawks in the background as they're talking. I guess "reality" is definitely in the hands of the movie director.

That radio-room clip was pretty quick. Thought I saw an early 1950's Collins RX/TX.

Fun movie. So was most of "Hugo".  3D has come a long way since "Bwana Devil".

 My favorite was the homebrew rig on Calling Monster Island:
