    Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing well and safe during these uncertain times.

    I watched the other day the movie Funny Face and they used these lights to lit up a scene; I was wondering if anybody knows what the name of these are?

    As to the actual model, I don't know. However it is most likely a tungsten filament 3200K in the 250 watt or higher output. Everything in that era were called "hot lights" for the very reason they got very hot due to the ignition temperature of the massive tungsten filament in the bulb. It looks to have a diffused surface to avoid hot spots and the banks of five could be just the same bulb x5.

    They look like Molefays made by Mole-Richardson. "Molefay 5" in this case.

    I agree, it also seems to me very similar to Molefays
