Paul, she could have tried that on any of my phones :D Brinybay, you had me start watching that movie now ;) Twilight Zone 1960 "A Thing About Machines". Notice the cord is about ready to pull out of the receiver. You could plainly see it move as he moved the phone. Real close to popping right out 8)

Twilight Zone episode "Night Call". Hey, a D1/202 with a 685A subset ??? Once you hear it ring, you'll know.

It's a C4 ringer--as in a 685A subset or a 500--but I think in the 1963 Twilight Zone episode  it's just a sound track.

It's possible to wire a 202 to a 685A subset using a 5-conductor mounting cord.  However, I doubt that 202s with E-type handsets were typically used with 685A subsets. By the time 685As were available (early 50s?), 202s would have had F1- or F4- handsets.

Dave I should have been more clear. I know it's Hollyweed at it's best using a soudtrack to fit the telephone "sound" of the day 8)  I should call that "KL" number and see if she answers :o Heck I have the same first name as her dead fiance :)

Save your time!  They put that number in the movie for a reason.

BTW around scene 7:40 in the movie, there appears to be a different D1 on her table. She dials it and it very much sounds like a #6 dial as opposed to her other version D1. Just a tid-bit to notice.

     The Twilight Zone is certainly rife with telephones, often prominently featured in the story / plot. I have several seasons on DVD, and might have seen the others, a time or two-ish. Still watch every evening at 2000, plus break out the discs, or Netflix them, on a daily basis. 8)

     One of the reasons is to re-enjoy them, while looking at telephone apparatus. Mostly, they still just beat the vast majority of the pablum, and pure fecal matter that the channels seem to be purveying at present.

Best regards!

Sounds like either a 4H with a stuck pulse pawl or a very early "silent" 5H with phenol pulse pawl.

Yeah maybe. I just heard the wind-up as she spun that dial to the stop. Reminded me of some #6 dials I've heard.

Spotted this just now while watching the following video on youtube, what looks like a 1A1/1A2 system phone with a gold (probably one of them metal covers) handset, behind the great bird of the galaxy that is Gene Roddenberry... :)

Anita and I got hooked on Murdoch Mysteries.  Lots of sticks in this series, here's a couple of them.  I believe the phone in the third picture is called a "staircase"?

I just love how the receiver is always put upside-down on candlesticks. It's annoying, but hilarious at the same time!
