1929

RCA produced Black and Tan to showcase its Photophone sound system. Film Daily said upon the film's release in November, 1929: "Duke Ellington and his all-colored orchestra put over the hot jazz – and how." Director Dudley Murphy collaborated with Fernand Léger on Ballet mecanique in 1924 and seasons this film with avant-garde sequences while also telling a story. The late Karl Emil Knudsen, well-known Danish producer of jazz records, purchased the original negative from Dudley Murphy and supplied the print from which this transfer was made.
