    Famous interior designer David Hicks created the much more famous hexagonal design seen in the photo above way back in the 1960s, but it wasn’t until 1980 that its true claim to fame arrived, as it appeared in Stanley Kubrick’s film The Shining as the distinctive and subtly menacing carpeting at the ghost-infested Overlook Hotel.

    The Alsta Nautoscaph watch was made famous when oceanographer Matt Hooper (as played by Richard Dreyfuss) wore it in the 1975 film Jaws. Sadly, despite the infusion of free publicity that came from the super-mega-blockbuster success of the movie, Alsta went out of business shortly after.
