    In the early days of the telephone the Hook Switch would light a lamp on the operator’s console when the receiver was lifted. The lamp (light) indicated that the that line was in use.
    Clicking the hook switch would cause the lamp to flash.


    So long ago that would have worked (if no one cut the phone line).

    A gesture repeated in later movies only to result in cutting off the connection completely.

    It always makes me laugh!

    Must be one of those retro Halloween prop phones.

    I seem to recall it working only once in a movie. I’ve no idea which one but it did strike me as odd.

    Where’s Lucy Fur these days?

    In the LASSIE TV show the phone was on the wall and had to be cranked!

    Is this all a dream sequence, therefore?

    Isn’t the armor made of iron? If it is, then all they would need is a magnet. That would stop him in his tracks.

    One more for the “hook” switch. Remember the rotary dial phones? Each number made a corrosponding “click”. So dial 1, get 1 click, dial 8, get 8 clicks. Okay – so, did you know that if you matched the click number by using the hook switch in the same time/number sequence, you could actually dial the phone? (That worked for me on hotel phones that didn’t have the dial – like an extension that you weren’t supposed to call out from )

    He’s going power hungry just like Iron Monger did when he built his suit from the scraps they found in the desert. Will the fish come back and fight for justice like Tony did?!?

    I’m surprised Poncho couldn’t pick up a party line on his phone! That was fun, when we moved to the country when I was 12, I picked up the phone once and was surprised to hear a conversation going on. I soon learned the ring numbers for various neighbors, and yeah, I was a naughty little girl! When my parents were outside or in the basement, or out of the room, I would pick up the phone and listen in! LOL!

    11921 — dial that and hang up and you ring all the phones on your party line. Call your neighbor or the extension phone in the basement!

    Get out! Really? I never knew that! Boy, we could have used that info when I was a kid; when my brother was a teenager, my parents gave him his own room phone, but it had no dial, could only receive calls.
