Now You're Talking: Using a Telephone (1927) - Classic Short Film
Bell Telephone instructional film produced by Max and Dave Fleischer shows how - and how not - to treat your upright desk telephone set. Don't wiggle the hook excessively, don't tangle the cord, keep away from water, etc.
An anxious businessman becomes frustrated during a telephone call, and slams down the telephone on his desk. He then begins to doze off, and he dreams about his telephone being taken away in an ambulance, and rushed to a doctor. In the dream, the telephone begins to tell the doctor about all the ways in which it has been misused.
