My mom had a "clicker" when I was a kid, in the early 70s.
It seemed a bit smaller, probably a knock-off like all other products ever made.

the last two pictures are from different movies judging from the people in the photos as well as the NYC sets. I would say the top photo is some 9/11 movie and the bottom looks like maybe "Escape from NY"

I remember those clickers; Mum used one to keep a running count of calories when dieting. Early 70s, I guess.
