The 2016 movie, "Standoff" features an old 35mm SLR throughout the movie.
I was amazed to have noticed in a 2013 Italian film (The chair of happiness) at Smena Symbol !!
John Wayne holding a Nikon F in McQ (1974)
I never liked John Wayne - and clearly he hasn't a clue how to hold a camera and lens.
That too was contemporary for the time.
That's not the oddest thing. In this scene, he uses the camera to spy on some gangsters and takes a few shots. As he shoot, you see what he sees through the lens and you can hear the shutter. The viewfinder never black-out
It would have helped to aim the camera out the window.
Also... that's about the nastiest "lens hood" I've ever seen. He must have found it near a toilet.
It is from a plumber's helper.
It is a lens bumper.
I've been extra on movie sets a few times. Not everyone bother with details, sometime the prop folks are tasked to make something look like something else and the result can be either very good or lazy as f***.
Here's Takashi Shimura, one of my favorite japanese actors, with a Canon IIb? in Gojira (1954).
It could be a IIIa also (Basically a IVsb without the flash rail) I have two of 'em, and that's what mine look like.
Yeah looks like a 50mm rubber collapsible, would not much use on a tele which looks like a 200 F4?
These were the standard shades over here.
My 200/4 pre-AI has a built-in collapsible metal hood. I cannot identify what lens is in the John Wayne photo - maybe a newer version though.
A lot of the pre-AI tele lenses had built-in hoods, such as the 135 and the 300 also shown below.
(sorry for the old blurry cellphone photo)
It isn't a Nikon lens. A Nikon will have a chrome ring near the mount. In 1974, it would have to be pre-AI, so it wouldn't even be a chrome ring -- it would be a chrome band. To me, it looks somewhat like a Vivitar S1 70-210/3.5. A zoom where one pulls the collar toward the camera for the long focal length, be it 200 or 210mm. Given the date of the movie (1974), the number of push-pull zooms it could be is limited. And I think it's a zoom because it appears to be too big to be a straight 200mm lens. It definitely isn't the pre-AI Nikkor, and it doesn't look like the Vivitar 200mm f/3.5, which was produced in 1974, but which is way smaller than that lens.
"The Beloved Woman" USSR 1981
The camera is for you to distinguish, the hammerhead flash is ukranian Luch-M (1980)
The flash is in need of a 300V battery, which is seemingly lacking in that scene...

Courteney Cox using a Minolta Dynax 5 - Friends Season 5 Episode 11
And a flash that looks like a Vivitar 283. Something of a mismatch.
Very unusual long FL lens !
It is a long FL lens with helicoid ring-focusing and lateral guide (a guide system similar to the prefocusing of the much later Noflexars)
Then there seems to be a second, relay, optic mounted between that lens and the Visoflex-box!
"Babeck", west-german TV crime movie (1967), 3. part:
A fake spy camera.
"Dr. Strangelove" , USA, 1964:
The best movie making fun of the cold war. Back then with all the tension we needed so relief.
