It is correct that the SMPTE leader shown did not come into use until television, but the writer says it should be Academy leader (Start..11..10..etc). This was not put into use until after 1930. The earliest sound films had a "Start" frame, but then just 12 feet of black film until the picture began.
The opening credits are styled after the style of opening used in the 1920s and 1930s, complete with technical credits shown the way they would have been then.
