Movietone Album Discography
By Mike Callahan, David Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: February 7, 2006

Movietone was a budget subsidiary of 20th Century Fox' record division. They issued 29 albums starting in 1965 and ending in 1967. Most or all of these were reissues of albums that had appeared earlier on the 20th Fox label.

Actually, the name "Movietone" had been used by Fox since 1926, when it was coined by William Fox to name the process he had bought for putting sound on film for "talkies." By the time the 1965 incarnation of the record label came along, Fox had issued some 78s on the Fox Movietone label decades earlier, but these were not commercial issues, as far as we know. "Movietone" was also the name Fox gave to its TV and Newsreel coverage.

In 1965, the catalog numbering system started as MTM 1000 for mono and MTS 2000 for stereo, starting with x001 and going to x009. The next year, when ABC took over as distributor, mono albums used 71 as a prefix and stereo albums used S72, continuing with the last three digits from the MTM/MTS sequence (71010/S 72010, etc.) The Movietone label was a medium blue with black print, with the white Movietone logo at the top of the label.
