Top cast!

AT&T went all out with this. Audrey Meadows (Honeymooners), Ruta Lee ("Love, American Style" and many other shows), Harold Peary (Great Gildersleeve movies and radio), Bonnie Franklin ("One Day at a Time"), Bek Nelson ("Lawman"), Gig Young "(Desk Set" and scores of other movies), and I think the guy in the shipping department was played by Charles Smith (played Dizzy in the Henry Aldrich movies). The director Leroy Prinz was known for being the director and choreographer of many dance scenes of movies from the 30's through the 50's, including "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and "Thank Your Lucky Stars".

The telephone equipment shown was the latest available at the time (1965), including the early versions of the 2554 wall phone, 2500 series desk models, and call directors. I was surprised the switchboard was rotary dial.
