The wires and cables were only props. However, what tells us the printer was actually and properly working again? Could have been it just startet typing. - BCNU!
Hello Arno, Well factually you are correct, that obviously the wires and paper were props. Fictionally speaking either the teletype had a back-up system, or No.6 hadn't carried out his act of destruction thoroughly enough. Another demonstration that good old-fashioned brute force, which No.6 seems so keen on, avails him nothing!Very kind regardsDavidBCNU
It's a little bit like Fall Out. He tried to rip out the innards, but obviously the village is still fully functional. Maybe there's a truth about it, the wires and paper being only props, at least they seem to be very interchangeable.Best wishesJanaBCNU
Regardless of how it was done it's the effect on, well, No. 6 and the audience that matters most. Talking about surrealism. - BCNU!
