This high production value 16mm reel from my collection is typical of the kinds of films that Bell Telephone was making in the 60's and 70's for business training purposes. This cast contains many actors that became well known in television roles in the 70's, and these kinds of industrial films were highly sought after work in those days because they paid well, and usually used large casts and original music composed and performed just for the project. This reel shows us that using your telephone system improperly and having bad telephone etiquette can cost you your business! FRAAAANNN!!!!! As usual I transferred the film with my own Telecine and color corrected to taste. Enjoy!

    Brings back memories of positions I've had in the past. For years I programmed phone and voicemail systems. But if the user doesn't apply the proper functionality, all you got is an expensive paper weight. What was true in the 60's and 70's, is still true today in business.
