    Warner Brothers-Vitaphone Stock 24 Sheet (Warner Brothers, 1927-1928). 24 Sheet (9' X 20'). Warner Brothers Studio was founded in 1923 by four brothers, Harry, Albert, Sam, and Jack L. Warner. Harry, the eldest, was president, Albert was in charge of distribution, and Jack, the youngest, was head of the studio in Burbank, California. Sam passed away in 1928. Warner Bros. began to rise to prominence in 1925 when it gambled on the new technological wave of bringing sound to motion pictures. In August 1926 Warner Brothers premiered their new Vitaphone process with "Don Juan" starring John Barrymore, which used music recorded on a disc rather than having orchestral accompaniment. In 1927 Warner Brothers released "The Jazz Singer" starring Al Jolson that included Vitaphone musical sequences. In 1928 the studio released "The Lights of New York", the first all-dialogue film, making Warner Brothers a major Hollywood studio. Offered here is a very rare, if not the only extant copy, of a 24 sheet advertising Warners' new Vitaphone process. Very Fine, Not Backed.
