Italian Cinebox and Scopitone expert Michele Bovi has an amazing new book
out on the history of the film jukebox. It's written in Italian with an
English translation (the photo captions are just in Italian, though).
It's a very thorough history of the
invention and marketing of the competing "film jukeboxes" with
interviews of inventors, executives, producers, directors, and the
artists who appeared in the films.
There's a bunch of interesting
tidbits about folks such as Debbie Reynolds (her production company
made many of the US Scopitones), Francis Ford Coppola (who lost a small
fortune he invested in the new technology), Robert Altman (who directed
at least one Scopitone film), as well as details about the US Scopitones business's extensive ties to the mafia.
I found this little pic while looking for more info (there's not much) on the Cinebox , another film juke box that competed with Scopitone and was popular in The UK and Italy. It's taken from a PDF I found promoting "Weird And Wonderful Sydney". "Weird And Wonderful Sydney".pdf
