Documentary of the history of the Los Angeles film studio horn players from the 1920s through the 1960s. “Featuring …interviews with LA music legends, the film follows the development of the motion picture industry…”
From the web site (1m1hollywoodhorns.com):
The roaring twenties… California’s economy was booming. Hollywood became the epicenter of filmmaking. Silent films had gained great acclaim, and musicians were hired to play in the theatre to provide a live soundtrack for the movie. As technology advanced, studios began to record sound on the set, and the musicians would record the score off camera while the actors filmed their scenes on camera. Later, the soundtrack was recorded separately and added to the film in post production.
