I recall being amazed and stunned in a reverse sense when I watched "Sabrina" 
(w/Audrey Hepburn).  Up until then, I had always thought of car phones as being 
a relatively recent innovation (i.e. I was vaguely aware of them existing in the 
1970's, although they didn't really start hitting their stride until the late 
80's/early 90's).

Imagine my surprise watching Humphrey Bogart on the Silver Screen 
ever-so-casually place a phone call from the back of his limousine....in 1954.
