Comicscope Ads-1940

What grabbed me more than anything else about these Fox SCIENCE COMICS ads from 1940 was the bit on the bottom center of the lower ad that says, "Just like the talkies!" and goes pn to state, "...all have words which are projected and readable on your screen..." Ummm....I know I'm not THAT old but somebody correct me if I'm wrong here; wouldn't THAT make them EXACTLY like silent films instead of "just like the talkies!"????
