OK For Sound (1946)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Entertaining 20-minute documentary covering the 20th anniversary of sound films. This here starts off talking about the early history of cinema as the likes of Edison tried to mix images with sound but failed. We then get to the 1920s as we hear about where the technology was at this time and how it eventually developed into THE JAZZ SINGER. From here we see how every picture went to sound and then we get a demonstration of how it works on a film like NIGHT AND DAY. I think this short does a pretty good job at talking about the history of sound in motion pictures even though silent buffs might not like a couple of the jokes aimed at silent pictures. Of course, in 1946 silent films were looked at something rather old-fashioned and there's no way those people could have known that these silent pictures would be viewed in today's time.
