Here are a couple of nice sides by Bob Haring And His Orchestra.  Both songs come from films made during the switchover from silent to talking pictures.

“Some Sweet Day” comes from the 1929 First National picture Children Of The Ritz which was a silent film with synchronized sound effects and a Vitaphone musical score.   The film is believed to be lost.

“Weary River” is the title song of another 1929 First National picture.  Weary River was a silent film with sound effects, music and talking sequences.  The film has survived and is available on DVD.
