The Questar in Film
      #5570090 - 12/13/12 10:39 PM

I have seen the Questar 3.5 in at least two Hollywood films. "The Mechanic" starring Charles Bronson had the Questar 3.5 featured in at least two different scenes where he was surveilling a mark and later when he was using it to photograph drug dealers making a drop. It was also used in "Body Double" where it was set up in a unique house on stilts where the main character uses it to spy on the lady in the apartment across from the house.

Any of you know of other Questar in films appearances?

"Into The Wild", a Sean Penn film from 2007. Main character gives his father, played by William Hurt I think, a Questar for his birthday.

I will have to check that one out. It would be interesting to see anyway as I have heard it wasn't a half bad movie.

I myself have a used Questar Standard waiting for pickup at the post office first thing Monday. I can hardly wait!

There's an old (1966) Jerry Lewis movie "Way... Way out" where a Questar is used as a bludgeon. It's about minute 1 into this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgh5kHqTjh0

As mentioned earlier, there's "The Mechanic" with Charles Bronson (1972). It's a little over 1 minute into this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdmRcgjN1m0

Also mentioned earlier, is the (1984) movie "Body Double", and the last 4 minutes of this link (although its a dubbed language): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpuxKu6s4OA
