I don't know about Elmos but there was a film I saw several years ago that used a very ancient 8mm projector for a significant scene.
The projector was one of those that had to be positioned on the edge of the table so that there was room for the take up reel, which hung out to the front and below the projector.
Funny thing is that this, obviously antiquated machine was showing a seemingly endless film of this young lads 'hippy' and sadly deceased mother singing a sixties Guthrie style flower-power song. The image was superb and the sound [singing and guitar]were all present and clear despite this obviously being a silent projector with a modest lens and light output.
Is that what's called an anachronism?
