Good stuff Bob. I'll add another perhaps with video at some point.

However, I think listing some of the generic props is kinda pointless. Brown coffee mugs can be found in diners across the U.S.A. as well as black phones. What's next, list off all movies with yellow cabs or white stoves?

This must be a classic coffee cup design, for so many similar ones to crop up. Be nice to find the exact one but this is pretty close (and I think there are a few different ones in MD anyway).

Googling, googling...

It's a 'Caramel Bell Mug'. Stick that in google and you'll find a few supplies of this design. Perhaps someone more observant than me can find that exact ones that feature in Winkies Dream, reality, Dianes etc..

They don't distribute to the UK :cry:

Would any of you Stateside like to go halves on a set of 12 Winkies mugs?

not sure if you guys are in europe or not, but those brown coffee cups are extremely common in diners, Denny's, Black Bear Diners, IHOPs, breakfast places, etc. all throughout the U.S. i've drained many a coffee from cups just like that back in the college days pulling alnighters in 24/7 diners.

the fact they show up in all those other different movies is not that surprising. if you were shooting a diner scene in america it would almost be more remarkable to not see that coffee cup.

interested in getting one for yourself, a restaurant equipment store will suit that purpose.

I'm not sure, but isn't this William Mulholland?
