Joseph Tykociner: Demonstration of Sound on Film (Beta) | University of Illinois Archives
This film shows a picture of Tykociner's apparatus and gives a description of its method of operation. Includes pictures of J. T. Tykociner, Jacob Kunz (developer of the photoelectric cell connected with the new process), Paine reading aloud, and Manoah Leide playing the violin. The film also shows pictures of the soundtrack and how it is affected by sound such as speech, the ringing of a bell, and the violin. This clip was produced from a videotape dub, of a duplicate a film was made in 1954 by the Motion Picture Society of America, in order to match the sounds of Mrs. Tykociner and the violinist. The original demonstration film was produced in 1921-22.
