Don Juan, the first feature-length film with a synchronized orchestral soundtrack, premieres in New York. Juan uses the Vitaphone process where phonograph records containing the soundtrack are played in sync with the movie. This same technology is later used in 1927's The Jazz Singer, the first feature-length "talkie." Though revolutionary, Vitaphone is replaced by sound-on-film processes by the early 1930s.
