Our Talkie Bracelet is based on the first UK talking feature narrative...
After sound became available, Hitchcock re-shot scenes of his originally silent film Blackmail (1929) to release it in British cinemas as the UK’s first talkie. It is also the first known case of one actress’ voice being dubbed by another. This was because leading lady Anny Ondra had such a thick Czech accent, unsuitable for her character, so Joan Barry was chosen to stand just out of shot and read the lines into a microphone whilst Ondra mouthed them on the camera.
925 sterling silver, harvested from film processing at Cinelab UK
Our Talkie Bracelet along with all our jewellery is hallmarked at Goldsmith's Company Assay Office, guaranteeing the precious metal is of the finest standard. From The Silver Screen's personal hallmark is also applied to each piece.
Authentic 16mm Film Can Jewellery Box
Not only is our silver upcycled from its special origins, but so too is the packaging! All of our Film Firsts jewellery will come encased in an original 16mm film can, for another cinema keepsake. This repurposed, sheet metal tin would have been holding real film stock from a production shot within the last year.
