In the classic movie, "Emperor of the North" Ernie Borgnine of the role of 'Shack' at one point pulls up his lantern to check the light, and you can see he's got a #19 stencilled to the top of the lid. Looks like its painted black overall.
Any lantern gurus out there who camn tell me the exact model of the lantern he's holding in the movie? I want to make a replica but it has to be the same model used in the film.
I can provide screen captures if needed, but I truly don't need a bunch of, "I guess" or "Maybe this" replies, I want to know the maker and model for certain, please.

Less than half an hour of posting the same question and photos on a model train site, someone positively ID'd it as a Adlake Reliable lantern with a 5-3/8" tall globe. He believes the lantern is embossed PRR, but to me it almost looks like it's marked, "PL RR" instead. Gonna have to break out the DVD and watch that scene again to see if I can make out the marking...
