However it is a bad new to the movie actors at the same time, many silent movie actors saw their careers ruined by the rise of the sound in films, some unfortunately had bad voices or thick accents, other had trouble remembering their line, in any event, a fair number of silent film’s biggest stars could not back in the motion picture industry anymore, apparently the would be replaced by the vaudeville stars well as radio actors.
The Warner Brother is an American producer of film, television, and music entertainment which was found in 1903 by Harry, Albert, Sam and Jack.
It was a well-known movie company since it was found, however their economy was not as good as their reputation, although it published movies every years, but the income was too little to afford their high expend; finally a big financial crisis appeared in the beginning of 1920s, thus they need to do something new, something that will earn enough money for them to save the WB from depression.
In 1925, The WB thought about the synchronized sound (then known as "talking pictures" or "talkies") for the first time, it was Sam’s inspiration, it led a revolution to whole entertainment industry in just few years, but nobody realized how fabulous it is at that time, they just wanted to innovate, it is their last opportunity and they had no choice.
Then, in the Xie 5 next year they published the Dan Juan, the first movie with that new thought, although the film was silent, it featured a large number of Vitaphone shorts at the beginning; people liked it!
Sibug English 11 23 November 2012 The Golden Age of Hollywood Hollywood was well known as the Golden Age of Hollywood in 1920s.
In this decade, people started to pay attention to the movies which made the movie industry developed rapidly.The sound in movie is like the soul in human; without their soul people are not people anymore.In the same way, the movie without sound is not a movie, but the movie producer did not realized this at that time.On the other hand the vaudeville actors were lucky, more than 90% of them were hired by Hollywood studios to play the BGM for sound movies.Sometimes, only if a man who had a good voice and a not bad appearance, he could be famous and wealthy in a short time, not matter how his social position it was or how poor he was.Even the people who were new in the movie industry as long as they had wonderful voice and their appearance were not so bad they were all being rich.With the big stars helping, the Hollywood movie industry improved once again, and became the real popular and fashion among the US, in the midst of that development one industry had to be mentioned---- the Warner Brothers.Nobody could say The Jazz Singer was not a huge success, but the Hollywood did not feel satisfied with the big accomplishment that The Jazz Singer had made, they wanted to be better and more dictatorial, so they kept developing their movies with this spirit.It is a logical thing they would absolute concern after they had made an evolution, just as if a man had invented or discovered something that anyone in the world do not know but him, he would sell it or apply a patent to protect his own benefit.It is not hard to imagine that how luxurious life they lived in and how famous they were, for instance Gloria Swanson’s bath tub was high purity gold!Similarly, Tom Mix who had acted as a cowboy had his named raised a top his house in six feet high letters.
