This title is offered as a special-order item. Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 163351. Publisher's description: Many believe King Kong (1933) was the first major attempt at integrating background music into sound film, but a closer look at the industry's early sound era (1926-1934) reveals a more extended and fascinating story. Viewing more than two hundred films from the period, Michael Slowik launches the first comprehensive study of this phase in Hollywood's development, recasting the history of film sound and its relationship to the "Golden Age" of film music (1935-1950).
