100 Years of Movies in 100 Days – Day 18 – Wings & The Jazz Singer (1927)

Sound exists. Well, in song form at least. I watched another silent movie though since I wasn’t able to find a full copy of The Jazz Singer. Instead, I watched Wings (not the sitcom with Tim Daly and Steven Weber) and came away with a rather apathetic impression to it. I think just the idea that there’s movies with sound now available kinda distracted me and while I was hyped up at seeing Gary Cooper on the screen, he’s so young, I didn’t even recognize him!

That and I’ve spent the day staring at a computer at work linking blog posts for Movies.com and Fandango. Honestly, I’m more eager to get into the Season 4 DVD collection of Friday Night Lights. Viva East Dillion! See ya!
