An awesome and fascinating 5 minute newsreel documentary of the sights and some of the sounds of 1929 Broadway. Some really great things in this --- notice the early Walgreens!!!!

That's fascinating. A lot of folks were anxious to get on camera there at the end. :) That was really an exciting time for the movie going public with the new talkies. I wonder what the Gloria Swanson talkie was. And I noticed that The Vagabond Lover was playing at one theatre. I have a dvd of that one.

The Gloria Swanson talkie had to be 1929's The Trespasser, released on November 11th. It was her first all talking picture. Excitingly, it is on YouTube in full! https://youtu.be/QzWDXm8PwYA
