The Typewriter Database 195X Hermes Ambassador Serial # Saving Private Ryan From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Scott O: 195X Hermes Ambassador Serial # Saving Private Ryan Normally I wouldn't include typewriter sightings from movies in my gallery, but I just couldn't let this one go without a mention:

In the award winning WW2 film "Saving Private Ryan," there's a scene set in a typing pool that's sending out death notifications after D-Day. One of the first typewriters you see in the shot - albeit briefly - is a second-generation, mid-1950's Hermes Ambassador. I kid you not. I spotted it immediately because I own two mid-60s Ambassadors.

It's not that hard to see, either. When my wife came home I replayed the scene in slow motion and she said, "Hey! Isn't that a Hermes Ambassador?"

Case closed.

Enjoy! :)
