FOX Movietone

Show Summary

FOX Movietone was a news-reel type of feature created by the Fox Film Corporation, the predecessor of today's Fox News Channel. Movietone primarily previewed upcoming cinema silent and audio films and shorts through the 1920s and on through to the 1960s. Now re-released in the 21st century, these antique examples of early cinema are an excellent opportunity to look into a previous era of budding film production, an archive of classics from the past. The earliest feature was a short film titled "Greetings by George Bernard Shaw"; an introduction to Movietone originally shown way back in 1928. Older viewers can expect a nostalgic experience as they remember the hosts of Movietone's 35 year run, primarily the voice of Lowell Thomas who narrated the majority of the features. Viewers are once again invited to explore the silver screen, starting from all the way back to the Silent Era, the very beginnings of mankind's exploration of cinema and film production.
