Goofs When Stella receives a phone call from her fiancé, she tells him that the "pips" are going and that he should insert more money to continue the call. The "pips" did not come in until 1959. Prior to that local calls were unlimited in duration and long distance calls were via the operator, who would announce when your time was up and you needed to insert further coins. See more »
