Movies In The Beginning

We have Thomas Alva Edison to thank for giving us the movies and the sound to go along with them. Edison’s invention of the Phonograph, which recorded sound joined with the Projecting Kinetescope, which recorded motion pictures; created pictures with sound. It was all very primitive, and would not be until much later that a good synchronization between the two machines occurred, but it was the beginning to movie magic as we know it today. It is the speech, sound effects, and definitely the music that captures our hearts and imaginations in the world of cinema!
