This is a delightful look at America's last magneto phone company in Bryant Pond, Maine, in 1982. Eldon and Barbara Hathaway ran the town's telephone system out of their home for 30 years and then sold out to Oxford County Telephone and Telegraph, which continued to operate out of the Hathaway's living room. The town gained national attention when the new owner wanted to upgrade to the dial system and a town committee was formed to fight the change with a rallying cry, "Don't yank the crank!"
