The telephone. 2,965 book titles include the word ‘Telephone.’ It appears in countless films and television programs. It is the subject of too many songs to fathom. The role of the telephone in movies and television is far more significant than a mere prop and, in many instances, it has a starring role. Directors have used phone booths to create panic and one Hollywood starlet invented a technology that we use every day. “That’s Entertainment: The Telephone’s Role in Cinema, Television and Music”celebrates the role of the telephone in American culture.
