Storyline

This short was made for the express purpose of noting the 20th Anniversary of Warners Vitaphone sound-on-film process, and was also made to be released concurrently, and shown on the same bill, with Warners' 1946 release of "Night and Day." And that is what happened. If a theatre-goer saw "Night and Day" on first-run in any theatre, they also saw "Okay for Sound." Unless they arrived lat, and then didn't stay for the "Extra Added Attractions." Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Okay for sound was Warner Bros. celebration of itself of 20 years of their talkies
3 December 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Like the studio's previous short-The Voice That Thrilled the World-Warner Bros. basically tooted their own horn when recounting their contributions to the sound revolution of film with clips of both The Jazz Singer and Lights of New York being shown though this one had a different clip from the latter-the infamous one of a gangster mentioning to "take...him...for...a...ride..."! Then there's a demonstration of the sound recording of the tracks of their latest picture, Night and Day, that was very interesting to me. This was followed by clips of the studio's other recent films of which the one from The Big Sleep was the most interesting to me as I've yet to watch that one. After "The End" card was shown, the announcer then presented the feature presentation. On that note, Okay for Sound was a fine informational short.
