Old School Fridays – First Cell Phone In A Movie


Ever wonder what the first movie was that featured a cell phone? Any guesses…….the first movie was the 1987 smash hit Wall Street staring Michael Douglas. Of course the phone that was used was “the brick”. The phone appeared in a number of scenes throughout the movie. Nowadays it’s hard to watch a movie that doesn’t have someone using a cell phone in it.

Well, considering that Lethal Weapon came out March 6th, 1987 in which Danny Glover’s character Sergeant Murtaugh walks around with a Brick Phone through most of the movie and Wall Street didn’t come out until Dec 11th, 1987. Wall Street definitely was NOT the first.
