Description

Wilford Deming Jr.’s ‘Hollywood Looks at India’ debuts as a feature in Varieties Weekly. The article focuses on the experiences in Indian cinema industry that Deming Jr. has had as an expert on sound recording, which prompted him to concede that in the technical sense, the Indian studios considerably pre-date the American studios. Deming Jr. surveys the conditions in an average Indian studio laboratory. He states that lackadaisical laboratory processing renders the sound and picture quality inconsistent through the length of the film, an instance which even the American studios are not able to prevent.
