| Okay for sound was Warner Bros. celebration of itself of 20 years of their talkies
Like the studio's previous short-The Voice That Thrilled the World-Warner Bros. basically tooted their own horn when recounting their contributions to the sound revolution of film with clips of both The Jazz Singer and Lights of New York being shown though this one had a different clip from the latter-the infamous one of a gangster mentioning to "take...him...for...a...ride..."! Then there's a demonstration of the sound recording of the tracks of their latest picture, Night and Day, that was very interesting to me. This was followed by clips of the studio's other recent films of which the one from The Big Sleep was the most interesting to me as I've yet to watch that one. After "The End" card was shown, the announcer then presented the feature presentation. On that note, Okay for Sound was a fine informational short.
