Here is a splendid little film from Bell & Howell promoting their Filmosound projector. The model number is not mentioned but I think it's an 185 from around 1950. I say this as the wooden blimp case has rounded corners, and the projector also has the new larger sprocket guards.

It is a 185 for certain, Maurice. You can actually see the number at about 5:12 if you look in the lower left corner of the frame. Thanks for posting.
