Notice it refers to the Inn as a set.

Yep, it as a set. The studios spent a lot of time and money building these large sets. Guess the switchboard was just a prop.

Paramount was one of the best for sets.  Consider the ones for Rear Window and The Ladies' Man.

Notice to the bottom of the web page it states:The snow used at the end of the film is actually asbestos.

I hadn't seen it mentioned, but the Netflix series "The Crown" is absolutely filled with beautiful phones. Lots of scenes with GPO 332's in red, ivory and some black ones with green receivers. I watch it solely to spot cool phones

We spent NYE staying home with snacks and movies.  We found a local channel that was running a string of old movies, they called it "Noir Years Eve".  They were surprisingly good.  One of them I happened to find on Youtube and got a capture of the leading lady looking longingly at a nice stick.  The movie was called "My Name is Julia Ross".  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x26RC_gJ80s

I just watched this movie, Telephone Operator. B movie but entertaining due to the 1937 telephone equipment.
