Coleen Moore Promotional Booklet From First National
Old Warner Brothers promotional booklet, from when they were still known as "First National" and were making the transition to sound via the "Vitaphone" process, which involved having the sound on a record synchronized with the film. They would continue to use the name Vitaphone long after they dropped the process in favor of having a soundtrack on the film itself.
Coleen Moore was a popular star at the time and we see that the studio was using this booklet to promote her latest movie, although mention is also made of a number of other stars, including Thelma Todd.
