i've seen these lights on stages at studios and on location - behind sets and around crafty (like a work light). the fixture consists of the stand, and the lamp, which looks light a gigantic lightbulb about the size of a mellon. what's the name of this light.

"I think that they are talking about a "ghost light". It is an old theater thing to keep the ghosts from tripping. It is a stand light that is wheeled onto the middle of the stage with a mogul base socket (usually some sort of scoop bulb). It is the only work light left on when all the others are shut down when people go home and the stage is empty."
