The movie has the perfect conceit to make the gimmick work. Just like "Good Night and Good Luck" make good use of black and white, they plot and directing conspire to make it all work. The stars did a great job fitting into their roles and making the audience relive the magic of the bygone era. Everything from the music to the credits evoke the time. And a few moments of sound, when you finally get them, really seem magical.
