    Just watched with my grandkids one of my favorite movies, Never Cry Wolf. There are some great shots of a Primus stove in action. Truly a beautiful movie. Brad

    I read the book long before I saw the movie,,, some part of me wanted to be disappointed with the movie,,, but it was quite good, and very enjoyable...

    Didn’t notice the stove,,, guess I’ll need to rewatch it now...

    That skillet in the second picture looks like one from the US Army Mountain Cook Kit,

    Optimus No. 45?
    The stove legs have the characteristic Optimus shape.

    Best Regards,

    The position of the air-release, on the top of the filler cap, of the stove from the film would indicate a manufacturing date between late 1950s to very early 1970s..... If it is indeed an Optimus No.45.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
