POV problem[edit]

This article seems to have a strong pro-Case/anti-DeForest POV. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:20, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Contradiction in re: 'talking pictures'[edit]

The article claims that "...The Jazz Singer with Al Jolson in Vitaphone and is often incorrectly credited as the first talking picture," but then goes on to say that "The Jazz Singer was the first feature film to use synchronized sound for talking sequences." That would seem to make it the first "talking picture," a term not synonymous with "sound film." Dtremit (talk) 23:20, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Sountrack location[edit]

There is no information about sondtrack width and location. Perhaps, frame size is very important too. Runner1616 (talk) 19:42, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
