When movies were being developed with sound, what were they called?
A sound film is a motion picture with synchronized sound, or sound technologically coupled to image, as opposed to a silent film. In other words, it's a film which sounds or talks: that's why first commercial sound films created in the late 1920s were known as "talking pictures" or just "talkies". First sound films were presented in Paris in 1900, but it took decades to make them commercially practical. The first commercial short motion sound film was screened in 1923. The first film originally presented as a talkie was "The Jazz Singer", 1927.
We are used to watching sound films, and we usually need it in HD. And what about good old-fashioned silent films? It was a great means of entertainment for the people of those times! Have you ever seen a silent movie? Tell us in the comments below!
