In Japan, the last above option played a different role with the Benshi, on stage performers who narrated a silent film and read the inter-titles in character. It was so popular that silent films remained an important part of Japanese culture until sound films became too popular and cheap to show on their own.

Other late silent films were offered with optional recorded soundtracks (synchronized music and sound effects, but no dialogue).

(The rest of the movie was a conventional silent.). The film created a sensation. 1928 saw the release of ''Film/TheLightsOfNewYork'', the first all-talking film. By 1929 silent film production had ended in Hollywood; the last silent produced by one of the major studios was MGM's ''Film/{{The Kiss|1929}}'' in November 1929.
