SCREEN USED SCOPE FROM DONOVAN’S BRAIN AND THE MAGNETIC MONSTER - (UA, 1953) This screen-used 13 in. x 11 in. x 8 in. electrical “scope” prop was used by “Dr. Patrick J. Cory” (Lew Ayers) and his wife (former First Lady Nancy Davis-Reagan) to keep the brain of deceased millionaire W.H. Donovan alive in the 1953 Sci-Fi classic, Donovan’s Brain. One of the few, if any, props from the film to ever hit the market, the item was also used by Dr. Jeffery Stewart (Richard Carlson) during the climactic scenes of yet another 1953 classic, The Magnetic Monster. The item, which was a working prop in Dr. Maxwell Smith’s legendary science fiction prop house, Vectrex Corp., (which supplied productions with medical and electrical props from the 1930’s through the 80’s), may have appeared in countless other productions throughout its lifetime. The metal box features a faceplate with lighting elements, dials, gauges and switches. Metal Vectrex Corp. tag affixed to back where the cord and plug are located. Equipped with working lights.
