This article focuses on the operation of sound in the split-screen movie. It concentrates, in particular, on instances where the storytelling function of sound is accompanied by the aural exploration of the split screen as a specific spatial form. Different relationships between the soundtrack and multiple frames are demonstrated through examples from The Thomas Crown Affair, The Boston Strangler and Timecode.
