New Artone Feature Ready

The Artone Feature Film Co., comprising W.H. Goodfellow, Francis Reno and Gustave Froebel, with studios at 307 John R street, Detroit, has completed its first picture “5:15.” The specialty of this company is making moving pictures of songs. Letters from exhibitors in all parts of the United States have been received asking for the privilege of showing Artone pictures. A vocalist appears in connection with each picture. The directing of the pictures is being handled by W.H. Gregory, well known in filmdom. Presently the company has purchased a Peerless motor truck, with jitney bus body, to transport its people to and from the studio. Roy Walling, who played an entire season as leading man with a local dramatic stock company, is now affiliated with the Artone Company.
