Title: Canadian Entertainment in the 1920


1
Canadian Entertainment in the 1920s
  • Powerpoint by
  • Luke Poley, Adam Joss
  • And Skyler Hainer

2
Music!
  • The start of music in the twenties was the end of
    the war the twenties were a time of prosperity,
    happiness, and over all joy, which lead to the
    creation of jazz, ragtime, and eventually morphed
    into blues during the depression, which paved the
    way for much of todays popular music.
  • The Sounds of the twenties, which evolved from
    big bands and became smaller groups, were upbeat,
    with songs like Crazy Blues by Mamie Smith,
    Pine tops boogie woogie by pine top smith, and
    Toot Toot Tootsie by Al Jolson

Publication
  • Before the gramophone, live music reigned in
    Canada, and the most reliable form of musical
    publication was as sheet music
  • Some Canadian newspapers even published
    periodicals of sheet music, so that other people
    could play it.
  • In 1918, however, in Lachine Quebec, Compo
    Company (Canadas first recording company) built
    Canadas first Pressing plant (which was the
    largest of its day)

4
Distribution
  • Compos pressing plant was originally intended to
    service American talent, printing records for
    several independent American record sellers, such
    as Okeh records, who wanted to expand into
    Canada.
  • During the expansion, with distributers selling
    American music to Canadians, Canadian musicians
    finaly found a way to shine Radio
  • During the 1920s, Canadas first radio stations
    were beginning to open, and even though they
    played less Canadian music then American music,
    it still gave Canadian artists more of a chance
    to be heard.

5
Radio
  • By 1922, Canadas first French radio station
    existed!
  • By 1923, Canada had a grand total of 34 Radio
    stations, and they spread hugely after that.
  • With the spread of radio, the newly created jazz
    spread,
  • Jazz was associated primarily with
    sophistication, as well as modern times, and
    decadency

Books
  • Some of the best selling books of the 1920s were
    The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald,
    Winnie-The-Pooh by A.A. Milne.
  • After the Great War people had a lot of money to
    spend on stuff like books and Comics.

9
Comics
  • Comics started out in the later 1920s around
    1928.
  • Some of the more popular names were Tintin, and
    Le Semaine de Suzette.
  • Some of the more popular authors of the 1920s
    Herge, Alain Saint-Organ and Pinchon

10
Newspapers
  • Newspapers had two issues one in the morning and
    evening.
  • Most cities had papers with different ownerships
    and editorial policies-usually Republican and
    Democrat.

11
Food
  • Food was plentiful and cheap thanks to the large
    quantities produced by American farms.
  • 44 hours a week were spent on preparing meals and
    cleaning each week
  • Gas stoves, electric refridgerators, and other
    labor saving devices made food preparation much
    easier.

12
Brothels
  • Beginning in the 1920s vice syndicates moved
    brothels to the suberbs where law enforcement was
    easier to control.
  • In the 1920s brothels were frowned upon but were
    legal.
  • Today brothels have been legalized so that
    prostitutes have a safe working environment

14
Movies
  • Until 1923, Silent movies would often be
    accompanied by a piano or organ track.
  • In 1923 the first commercial film with a recorded
    audio soundtrack was produced.
  • It took about 7 years for the talking movies to
    completely replace the silent ones.
  • Production of The Jazz Singer in 1927 changed
    the talking movie industry with improved
    recording technology.

15
Movies 2
  • Famous characters like Mickey Mouse and actors
    like Charlie Chaplain debuted in the 1920s.
  • The three Canadian films produced in the 20s
    were Big Timber, Blue Water and The Great Shadow.

16
Radios
  • Radios were the one of the first forms of
    electronic entertainment and communication.
    People used to rely on radios just like people
    rely on their phones and computers now,
  • In 1920 CFCF is Canada's only radio station with
    regular broadcasts. In 2 years, over 800 American
    stations are created.
  • In 1925 a Canadian inventor, Edward Rogers had
    created battery-less radios that could be plugged
    in. This helped bring radios mainstream.

17
Radios 2
  • Radios could provide many different forms of
    entertainment and information such as news,
    weather, sports, radio shows and much more.
  • In 1929 the AIRD commission recommends creation
    of the Canadian Radio Broadcasting Corporation
    (CRBC) was created so all radio broadcasts could
    be looked after by one national company. It was
    then created in 1932.
  • This helped bring in a standard for radio
    stations and ensured high quality broadcasts.

18
Influenced Society
  • Entertainment was influenced by society as
    equally as it influenced society. The idea of
    being rebellious was becoming popular. Girls
    known as "Flappers" were quite common. These
    young (15-30) girls typically smoked, drank,
    partied. This shows how the rebellious ideology
    of the 1920s was reflected in it's entertainment
    and it's people.
