    Girls roller skating around a telephone exchange in Los Angeles.

  • Description

    Girls working in a telephone exchange in Los Angeles wear roller skates to get around - groovy.

    C/U of lines being connected then a long shot of the exchange where two women skate up and down connecting and disconnecting calls. Various shots of the girls at work. A different angle reveals in the foreground four seated telephone operators who are taking the calls that the roller skating operators assign to them.

    Quirky stuff.

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue 407.

    Safety print exists.
