Dr Strangelove [“If you don’t get the President of the United States on that phone; you’ll have to answer to the Coca-Cola company.”]

Glengarry Glen Ross [Phones everywhere, trying to sell dirt…]
Goodfellas [Jimmy reacts badly to news that Tommy has been whacked; he takes it out on the phone box. Talk about shooting the messenger…]
