The Story of Film: An Odyssey (E4) - The Arrival of Sound (2011)

Documentary, Captioned 1h 2m

The arrival of sound upends everything. We witness new types of film: screwball comedies, gangster pictures, horror films, westerns and musicals, and discover a master of most of them: Howard Hawks. In England, Alfred Hitchcock hits his stride while across the Channel, French directors become masters of mood as Hollywood delivers The Wizard of Oz and Gone with the Wind.
