PHOTOBOOTHS IN MOVIES & TV

Batticuore

Mario Camerini (Italy, 1939, 87 min.)

Italian star Assia Noris and American John Lodge (of the Massachusetts Lodges, and later governor of Connecticut) starred in this Italian romance which features a photobooth scene, but which we've never seen in its entirety.

In this still, Lodge and Noris sit in a machine with a sign reading PHOTOMATON on top.

Made in 1939, the film comes in as one of the earliest to use a photobooth, just a decade or so after it was invented.

Please let us know if you come across a copy of the film.
