  • And in the movie "The Pink Panther Strikes Again" you hear Herbert Lom play an excerpt from Bach's Fantasy in G Minor and Tiptoe Through The Tulips.

    • lcid - that's a good one. Here's one from the closing of the "Rosalie" 1937.
      From Rosalie 1937

      In this scene, the West Point Cadets (all white, of course) are marching up the stairs past a series of organists at circular consoles with highly stylized pipes.

      • I don't recall if anyone mentioned The Beverly Hillbillies episodes from Season 1. I think it was around Episode 15 at 2:42 or so, when the family returns to Kentucky, and Pearl (& Jethrine) attempt to woo a husband with her organ playing and singing. The pump organ looks a bit like a Shoninger, but I can't be sure from the angle shown.

        Way too many organs to list, but I do have 5 Allens:
        • MOS-2 Model 505-B / ADC-4300-DK / ADC-5400 / ADC-6000 (Symphony) / ADC-8000DKC
        • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)
        • 11 Pump Organs, 1 Pipe Organ & 7 Pianos
