Ruben Pardo has been a professional elevator operator for 40 years. At 75, he’s the oldest one in Los Angeles. He learned how to operate elevators from the “old-timers” and still remembers going to the movie theater to watch other “old-timers” like Humphrey Bogart and Gregory Peck. In this short documentary by Dress Code, Pardo reminds us of the simple joys in life and lets us know that he’s “on the first floor” and “the doors are always open!”
