History Detectives | Clip | Lauste Film Clip

Our contributor has a collection of photos, letters and scrapbooks that belonged to a man named Eugene Lauste. Most compelling was a rolled strip of film and an article from 1928 featuring a photo of a similar film strip with the caption, "The First Talking Picture: A section of a talking picture made in 1913 by Eugene Lauste." Could this film be a piece of the first talking picture?
