    Why do all movie phone numbers start '555'?

    It’s one of the strange things about making a movie: you can create entire worlds inside a computer and have winged dragons facing off against giant fire-breathing robots, but you can’t show someone dialling a real phone number on screen. Ever since the 1950s, when you see someone dial or recite a phone number, chances are it’ll start with the numbers 555.
