The Marvel of this Scientific Age
Motion picures that would tell their stories in living, breathing, human tones have been the dream of men of science from practically the beginning of the industry. As far back as nineteen years ago, Theodore Case, a student at Yale University, began to experiment with the fascinating prospect of photographing sound on film. Joining hands with E. I. Sponable, inventor of the Aeo light, a basic part of the process, and with the financial backing of William Fox, these two wonder workers conceived and perfected Fox Movietone, the device that has revolutionized an industry. Through its medium you command all the thrills of life in sound and motion with a fidelity of reproduction that is enthralling.
Already having revealed the personalities of each celebrities as Benito Mussolini, Marshal Foch, General Pershing, Colonel Lindbergh and a host of others, we are now honored to be able to offer what has been hailed as "the most impressive use to which the onsweeping Fox-Movietone has so far been put."
The first appearance in Aemrica of the renowned author and playwright,
GEORGE BERNARD SHAW
All apparatus used in recording and reproducing sound is designed and manufactured by the Western Electric Company to whom Movietone gladly and publicly acknowledges its obligation.
