in Documentary

Back in the day, you used to have to call The Operator in order to connect your call to someone else. This is a documentary about The Operators – male and female, but mostly female – at their work, and describing their work and the type of customers they encounter. The beginning of this video features clips from a 1913 D.W. Griffith silent film, Telephone Girl and the Lady, at the beginning and end. Found at AT&T.
