Renfax Musical Motion Pictures -- September 13, 2014

Moving Picture World, 12-Septebmer-1914

The Renfax Film Company made one of the many early attempts at producing motion pictures with synchronized sound.  I haven't found many details yet, but they seem to have sold a device that would synchronize a motion picture projector with a phonograph.  I know from experience that this is very hard to do.  "Weekly rentals less than cost of single singer."
