Warner Bros.'s 1929–1930 season was one of extraordinary productivity and sound innovation. Featured in this work are the following movies:- "Die Arche Noah" (Noah's Ark) (1929) which has several talking sequences. Perhaps to avoid the jolt of the interjected voice, the film introduces talking gradually. - Two movies starring Camilla Horn: 1. "Madonna im Fegefeuer" 2. "Die Drei um Edith"- "Der Schrecken von Piccadilly" (The Terror) (1928) is a "mystery melodrama" written by Harvey Gates and directed by Roy Del Ruth, based on a play by Edgar Wallace.
