  • November 1: The Big Trail featuring a young John Wayne in his first starring role is released in both 35mm, and a very early form of 70mm film and was the first large scale big-budget film of the sound era costing over $2 million. The film was praised for its aesthetic quality and realism that wouldn't become commonplace until many decades later. However, due to the new film format and the film's release during the great depression the film would go onto become a financial failure at the box office.
