Color TV (Likely BW) from Movie?

I really feel this is supposed to be a black and white set, but I'll put it in color, simply because I HAVE seen a color TV once with this kind of shape for the picture tube.

I was watching the movie Casper and saw that TV show up in it. I figured someone could identify it.

(Working on getting a direct frame grab for you guys).

EDIT: When examining this, it looks like an inline tube to me, so certainly NOT the original tube or chassis for whatever TV that set originally was (just a prop set). But curious about the original.

That is a mid 50s Silvertone set, black & white as you suspect. It does very strongly resemble Westinghouse's 22" color set:

Hmm, dials on the top look a bit different though. I lightened up the picture a little.

Still a Silvertone? I really am not familiar with the logo on that set at all.

Very definitely. The selector knob and its placement give it away.

Interesting, ok thanks!

Always wondered what it is, and glad my idea of it being black and white wasn't wrong. Wish they would use more older sets in movies in a realistic setting. So far the only one I've personally seen was a Kiss music video, in which it was a late 70's set, but was very much really used.

It's one of these Silvertones, only it's a model that has doors on it.

Ahh ok, so that's why it looked like it had two panels on each side.

Very interesting, thanks! You guys rock. I might have another old set for you guys to identify for me, except this time it's from an old family photo.

I think that I can almost make out the Silvertone logo, and perhaps a "V" below the CRT:

Movie producers usually will paint the TV screen a blue color, so they can later paste in video footage. Getting actual video displayed on the CRT on film is difficult. Beat patterns between 24 fps for film vs 59.94fps for video, getting the brightness and contrast right, are issues they'd rather deal with later in post production.

There were 24Hz video monitors made for the film industry to deal with that issue...
