A bit more about Earl Burtnett from <a href="http://vitaphone.blogspot.com/2007/02/m ... ts.html</a" target="_new">http://vitaphone.blogspot.com/2007/02/m ... ts.html</a
A leap ahead now from East to West Coast, and from 1908 to 1929 where we see a wonderfully silly publicity photo heralding the release of Brunswick phonograph recordings of tunes from MGM's "The Broadway Melody." The film's three major players (Bessie Love, Charles King and Anita Page) can be seen here, surrounded by Earl Burtnett and his Biltmore Hotel Orchestra, but front and center is a beautifully crafted gigantic mock-up of a Brunswick disc that likely made the rounds of theater lobbies and retail stores alike, designed to fold at the center for easy transport and storage.
Finally, according to IMDB the Earl Burtnett Biltmore Hotel orchestra appeared in two full lnght features, "The Flying Fool" (1929, unredied) and "Party Girl" (1930).
