I doubt anybody can identify this keyboard in Night Gallery - "You Can't Get Help Like That Anymore". The keyboard was made before 1972, so it's a very early terminal keyboard.

An IBM Model M in Peter Parker's room, from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man (2002). Missing a few important keys, I think. :lol:

From the upcoming Blade Runner 2049, most likely a mock-up. Seen in the "Nowhere to Run" clip.
Symmetric stagger - and then broken off, chiclet.

Wow how did I not recognize it. Such a cool looking board. Did those were sold in Europe? Never seen one at auction sites here.

I don't know if they were sold in Europe, but the PC boards, at least on some Gen3 models, had legends suggesting a different "Europe" layout:

As auxiliary macro pads go, I suppose this one could work rather oddly...

I watched this really funny movie "Coming to America" starring Eddie Murphy yesterday evening and I had to pause it to make some pictures for you. Maybe you know more what keyboard it could be.

Interesting. I'm very fond of any keyboard with an XT layout.

In Stranger things, ep. 4 season 3, an IBM xt pops up in a corner of the shot with a lotus 123 function key legend frame, quite yellowish. :D

I noticed that on this keyboard in Brainstorm (1983), somebody swapped the keycaps around to spell "RICKY".

That same keyboard is shown in earlier scenes with the proper QWERTY layout.
