Didn't have time to post this yesterday... but yesterday in history, October 6th, 1927, The Jazz Singer heralded in talking pictures to prohibition era movie-going audiences. The film starring Al Jolson, features both silent and sound synchronized scenes.

Although, as I'm sure we all know, the groundbreaking film is also notorious for one other thing... :)
