On another list, one devoted to collectors of old recordings, there was a 
posting today which said that in 1916, Edison sold the Kinetophone to a 
Japanese financier for $50K, and asked if there was any production which 
resulted directly from the deal, or any artifacts of such production.

Is this true?
Were any sound-synched films made?
