Cartoon Summary:

One of AT&T's many advertising films promoting long-distance service and the national telephone network. "Long Distance" is a paean to the operator, mythologizing the "alert young woman" heard in the customer's receiver. Equating the development of long-distance service with American territorial expansion, this polished film includes animated maps illustrating the growth of the telephone network and footage showing how calls are routed.
