It's amazing how many individual pieces make up the dial switches.  Great video!

I would like to teach my phones to do that after I get them apart.
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

I have seen this clip before, but with the original soundtrack and narration.  It's been a while, but I presume a member of this forum posted it.  It's delightfully corny in comparison to the musical score on this you-tube version, and as I recall, a much clearer resolution.  Still a fun one to watch.  Very educational for PLU's.

Here is a page with the original clip with the original soundtrack. I found this a few weeks ago. Just scroll down the page a bit till you find it. A few other movie clips are on the page as well.

You can find the Original versions of many Bell system films at the internetarchive.org Many of them are in the Prelinger archive.

Tony,
This is a neat link. I shortcutted it for future reading. I suspect steve w/ the navy phone is the dial guy.
Thanks,
