Actually, those were Soviet agents, not Nazi's. Boris and Colonel Kerchenko(something to that effect). Episode was "The Jeopardy Room"

Funny you should mention the Twilight Zone. I spent 2 years recording episodes off TV, editing out commercials, and putting them on VHS. (Got every one!) Then boom, ten years later they are released on dvd REMASTERED. What a waste of my time. Anyway I remember the 'Night Call" episode so I'm going to see what type of phone Gladys Cooper used!

Well it was a 202  with a B1 handset WE that rang just like a 500 WE! It's on youtube

Night Call is one of my favorite episodes!  Gladys Cooper was brilliant in that one, and in the one with Robert Redford, where he plays a "policeman" trying to get her to leave her house, which is being torn down.

How about the original "Night of the Living Dead", I think the old farm house has a D1 mount that the main character tries to dial out on...it shows it up close quite a bit.

Is that the one where they brought down a series string table model GE tv, and, were watching the news reports on it?
The acting in that movie was fantastic!

If you closely at the E1 handset, you'll notice it's seemless......Why do I notice such useless info? :P

I can't believe  all the times I've seen that episode, and as fascinated by the 202 as I've been, that I didn't even notice the subset.  I'll have to watch it again. 8)

I'm kidding Bing, I really don't know what subset it used. Though the 685A uses the 425a/b network if I'm not mistaken. That would give it the "500 series" bell sound ;) Unlikely as it is.

It's funny, I never thought about the sound of a telephone's ring  on a TV show before.  I watched the first part on youtube, and did notice a very non-standard number card, though. 8)

Part of my problem is I lack the ability to remember all those fine details you guys remember. My telephone intelligence, if measured 0-10 would be a minus 2.
