Born Samuel Eichelbaum, but known as "Sam," his interest in film came after seeing Thomas Edison's "The Great Train Robbery" while working as an employee at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio.
Sam Warner can be credited as the brother who brought sound to Warner Brothers theaters after tricking his brother Harry to attend a convention on the matter. Sam Warner placed all his efforts into developing sound for the company and some say it contributed to his early death due to a chronic sinus condition.
Unfortunately, Sam Warner died the day before the film made its debut in New York City and never saw his creation come to the theater, nor the enoromous change it had on the motion picture business.
