|Hi Everyone! I was wondering if I could enlist the help of you experts and see if anyone might recognize this "dressed up" console.
It appeared to be a late circa-70s handheld possibly, but after pretty extensive search thru the site I am not so sure.
BACKGROUND: Above picture used as a 'background prop' in the sci-fi classic 'ALIEN' by Ridley Scott, which was filmed at Shepperton studios in the UK in the late 1970s.
Reason I thought it may be a hand-held is 1)size 2)obvious markings like "Score" "Player" "Game no." ect. and 3) the directional "up and down" buttons on the right side.
The upper left looks to be an added calculator keypad (not orig.) and the large LED readout is probably secondarily added (e.g. Red zeroes and ones).
Thanks for anything you guys can think of...
