Vintage tripod identification

I've been trying to identify this tripod that was used as a prop in a movie (Bridges of Madison County). The movie is set in the mid-1960's and does a pretty good job with using props that are from that time period.

The tripod is all metal with a center post and black twist locks on the legs. The tripod head seems to resemble most closely a Tilt All but not quite. It's also possible the tripod was simply more or less assembled for the movie and isn't an actual branded product.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Unfortunately I can't be of assistance but it's one of my favourite films of all time. Epic performances from two of the best actors.

Yes, agree. Clint and Meryl are two of my favorites.

The character Kincaid used a Gitzo tripod, Nikon F with motor drive, along with 28 and 105mm lenses for the bridge shots. The actual photographs used in the book and movie were shot by the author, Robert Waller.

Much appreciated. Perhaps it's the tripod head that's throwing me off. I agree the tripod appears to be Gitzo. The head though I haven't been able to match up to anything so far.

Thank you
