In a scholarly and entertaining study of the transition from silent movies to talkies, Eyman shows that many filmmakers were reluctant to embrace the new technology, despite audiences' fascination with this innovation which revealed what their favourite stars sounded like. He discusses sound's creative and economic impact on Hollywood, and how the popularity of early talkies such as Warner Brothers' The Jazz Singer laid the foundations for the modern movie industry.
