Soundman, The (1950)*** (out of 4) Great documentary short talks about the history of sound in movie and the fresh techniques being used today (or 1950). This is a cute nice short as it does a great job at showing exactly what a sound mixer and designer do. I'm sure everyone has heard of these terms or folks when they watch the Oscars but these are probably the awards folks go to the bathroom during or just simply tune out. We receive some clips of early silent films and the advances that Edison tries to create in order to receive sound on film. We then flash forward to LIGHTS OF NEW YORK and IN OLD ARIZONA, which I just watched a several weeks ago. The short even points out a several of the scenes where the microphone was hidden. We also receive to go inside a sound vault to see where they hold all the sound results and how they are labeled and stored.
THE SOUNDMAN plods along with a mercifully brief look at the origin of sound in the films with some current scenes of early talkies and how a several of them were made. Funniest bit shows the actors (playing criminals)gathered around a table where the mike is hidden inside a telephone. Lines are delivered very slowly and actors react in dumb fashion to the plans. Then the first western to test sound, IN OLD ARIZONA with Warner Baxter and a slew of another movies like THE JAZZ SINGER and LIGHTS OF NEW YORK.Technicians are shown testing with the different controls and knobs that separate the sounds for individual control before being aligned on one strip of film.Summing up: A clumsy attempt to present how sound is produced on movie and not particularly engaging.
IT IS LIKE a breath of new air for coming out of the Hollywood glad-handing, self congratulatory mill. Rather than a lot of "wow, ain't we good", of which the Oscars have become, really receive an inside look at the technical aspects of movie-making. In particular, it is of the "Talkies" all necessary demigod, the sound gut.ECONOMY OF PRODUCTION is the obvious credo here, as the director sews together some footage apparently culled from MGM, Warner Brothers, Fox and another studios. Added to those archival bits of footage are some done as "behind the scenes" sequences, designed to present the camera filming the action while it too is being filmed.WE THEN ARE shown the expertise displayed by these learned boys of science, as the masterfully add and blend the right sounds in the proper volume in just the correct lengths to render otherwise "silence" into a living, 'breathing' scene.PRODUCED BY THE Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences (officially), this short was the distributed by Columbia Pictures. Well, Schultz, the large shot moguls gotta have thought this to be below their dignity. So, the threw it as a bone to former Poverty Row operator, Harry Cohn of Columbia.NOW SCHULTZ, AIN'T that sweet?
