Accompanied by sound, via double-turntable music on disc.
"Canadian Capers, filmed by Hamilton H. Jones, ACL, is a superlatively good vacation picture, complete in every important detail and containing several magnificent examples of sequencing. Among these is a satisfying study of a railway train. Mr. Jones neglected none of the cinematically interesting views that are unique to this subject and included several, such as scenes inside the engine cab, that ordinarily could not be secured. This picture has the important quality of conveying to the audience the maker's enthusiasm for the subjects filmed." Movie Makers, Dec. 1932, 560.
Canadian Capers was the first "Ten Best" film to be accompanied by sound (via double-turntable music on disc). Movie Makers, Dec. 1950, 449.
"The film was screened for the entire governing body of Ontario at the Parliament Buildings in Toronto. The Ontario officials rated the picture so highly that the Government chose it as a publicity medium for the Province." Movie Makers, Oct. 1933, 415.
Canadian Capers is discussed with Jones' other works in Movie Makers, July 1942, 307.
The film was available in the ACL's Club Film Library.
