Personal Quote:

The public probably little realizes the various advances in sound pictures, but some of our troubles and problems have had an element of humor. For example, we experimented much in early days to prevent falling rain from sounding like dropping bullets when recorded. We learned to 'damp' the sound with blotting paper on window sills, or felt on the ground out of camera sight.
