Point of Interest Details


Sound Engineer E B Craft demonstrates how to set up the Vitaphone recording system (edited). This was produced in 1926 - a year prior to the release of The Jazz Singer (1927) starring Al Jolson, the first feature-length motion picture with not only a synchronized recorded music score, but also lip-synchronous singing and speech in several isolated sequences utilizing the Vitaphone sound-on-disc system.
