Events

Many full-length films were produced during the decade of the 1920s.

The transition to sound-on-film technology occurred mid-decade with the talkies developed in 1926-1927, following experimental techniques begun in the late 1910s.

With sound, the concept of the musical appeared immediately, as in "The Jazz Singer" of 1927, because silent films had been accompanied by music for years when projected in theaters.
