These neat cameras were purchased yesterday at a local estate here in seattle that belonged to a hollywood producer. I also purchased a large box of movie props from the same estate that were used on the set of Gumsmoke and i will post a picture of those as well to see if anyone might know more about them than i do.

    You've got two great cameras there. The Bell & Howell is a Filmo 75. You can see if it runs by pushing the tab below the nameplate. If nothing happens, it may need to be wound with the large key on the side. Here's some more info about the Filmo:

    The Kodak is a Bantam Special. Here's some info about that one:

    By the way, your Bantam has the Supermatic shutter, which makes it more desirable to collectors than Bantams with a Compur shutter.
