Update: believe it or not, this typecast has been on file since July 2012 and the Emmys were handed out in September. Mad Men didn't win Best Drama series, Homeland did.
|A not entirely unrelated digression- I spotted a|
turquoise Olivetti Studio 44 in one of the episodes
of the defunct retro series Pan Am (note the improperly
placed typebars cover). I enjoyed Pan Am but got sated
after a few episodes.
Back to Mad Men, I also spotted a late 60's Hermes 3000, here being used by the ghost of Don Draper's half-brother Adam.
Immortalized on TV: the dreaded broken Hermes platen knob!
One more, the blue Royal Safari beside a twin gooseneck lamp is hard to ignore.
I just had to include this! Those of you who lived through
the Mad Men era, bet you still have groovy threads like
these in your closet. ( :
I found just-released promo stills for Season 6;
Mad Men will be back April 7.
More Olivetti spotting to come, I hope.
