Film Sound

In watching old movies (from the "crappy collection at the local library" as angryrobot put it) I had some question about how they combined location sound,
sound effects, and music before magnetic recording. I still don't totally get it --
they could record sound optically during filming but it would have continuity problems
during editing, for example. But I found a great site to explore if you have any interest at all in the subject -- or sound design in general:
