Jazz Singer movie Customer Reviews
||First Talkie and rare rendition Al Jolson's best|
Not only is this rarely seen , but this is an historical film showing the young Jolson even rendering Hebrew melodies in this timeless exposure of childhood rebellion. I'm only sorry that this has not been remastered into a DVD format

||Jolson, Vaudeville, and the Birth of Sound|
Whether you are a Jolson fan as I am or not, this three disc dvd set will keep your attention. For the strict Jolson fan we have the remastered Jazz Singer and his Plantation Act short. But to be honest, disc two and three held the most interest for me. A fine documentary on the birth of sound film as well as over 3 and half hours of Vitaphone short subjects. After watching these shorts you will have the experience of having watched a Vaudeville show. Some are good, some bad and a few that still would hold up today.
