    In Alex's parents flat/apartment, in A Clockwork Orange, there is a small keyboard: I think it's a Selmer Companion 49, an electric reed organ, from Italy.

    The one I was watching is the 1993 movie with Anjelica Huston and Christina Ricci (as the *adorable* Wednesday) 8)

    I’m surprised this one wasn’t mentioned already- In “Addams Family Values” at the beginning Lurch is playing a two-manual “pipe” organ. It looks like the console might be cobbled up from reed organ parts. A little later during Fester’s outdoor wedding ceremony Lurch plays the wedding march on a single-manual ‘pipe top’ reed organ, which appears to be real.

    A fabulous concept. Mebbe it's what we're doing in reality!

    Ah, yes the notation is supposed to represent her existential warping of physics through music

    Now there's a truly fanciful depiction -- not only of an organ but of the hilarious fake notation popular culture has always featured -- the notable exception being Schroeder's toy piano playing, natch

    This one is a far reach, but it is dearly beloved by me. I've read it faithfully first thing in the morning for more than a decade. It takes place in a world where mad scientists rule (badly!). A scientist with a true Spark of madness can warp reality.

    In this scene, our heroine is defending her friends in a traveling circus from attack by the Baron Wolfenbach by controlling robotic circus wagons with the music from a theatre organ.

    organs, alas, do not figure prominently although one or two show up in the background.

    Another miracle has struck. In Pollyanna (1960 Disney movie), does anybody remember the arresting shot where a pump organ suddenly appears with two hands playing it? As I live and breathe, the actress is actually playing the music being heard (normally impossible hurdle #1) and it SOUNDS LIKE A PUMP ORGAN in the music track (#2) -- they didn't replace it with an electronic as I'd expected.

    Actually I think the organ belonged to the Germans or Swedes. The Russians were busy mending their nets and the Mongols wanted them to join the Horde.

    How odd! Our Symphony conductor is conducting in a couple of the videos. I now remember receiving the link a couple of months ago because of the organ, and he wanted to share it with me.

    Small world! Thanks for sharing, Admin.

    OMG, it's great! (Admin and everybody!) Have watched the 1st 2 videos and am launching into the 3rd -- amazing stuff including his wonderful passion for the Wurli. (He says he doesn't play -- could have fooled me?)
    I'm a movie addict and I love anything about MAKING movies. He's saved and lavishly restored a theater organ, I guess we can forgive him for gutting a pump organ THANKS, Admin.
