It's the first place my mind went, but then I remembered that those are all computers (with tiny screens behind Fresnel lenses.) Even the Tuttle/Buttle gag was a printer, not a typewriter.

Remembering? That's a job for Information Retreival, I'm afraid. I wouldn't want to risk overeach with that lot... unless you are Information Retreival in which case please don't audit me...

That's good. Maybe I should have watched the whole video instead of just skimming it.

I kind of want a typewriter. An old Smith Corona or Remmington manual model would be nice to have. I've grown more interested in older forms of writing like fountain pens. I have a couple dozen of them now and a growing assortment of ink.
A typewriter, especially an older manual one would fit in nicely. Not a big heavy beast like the IBM Selectric ones I used in typing class though. Although I could type fairly fast on one by the end of the class. Peaked at around 85 wpm, but now if I push it, might type 60 on a keyboard, but with all the typos on a phone or pad 20 wpm on those. Might get a mechanical keyboard when my current one finally gives up. Just to get that tactile feeling when I type.

I must report the sight of the "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" typewriter at the LACMA  Kubrick exhibit set me into a paroxysm of giggling that didn't subside until I was driving home.

Nota bene: I just discovered the poor typist who filled those hundreds of sheets also had to do it in several different languages

Italian:
Il mattino ha l'oro in bocca
(The morning has gold in its mouth)

German:
Was du heute kannst besorgen, das verschiebe nicht auf morgen
(Never put off until tomorrow what can be done today)

Spanish:
No por mucho madrugar amanece más temprano
(No matter how early you get up, you can't make the sun rise any sooner)

French:
Un Tiens vaut mieux que deux Tu l'auras
(What you have is worth much more than what you will have)

I still love my IBM Selectric II Correcting.  Man, what a machine.  I sometimes use a Royal Quiet Deluxe to make cards and tags for gifts.
