Jewish protagonist Jakie Rabinowitz, torn between tradition and modern spirit, and the success of the film are inseparably connected with the artist Al Jolson.

From then until , when he retired from the stage, he could boast an unbroken series of smash hits. La Belle Paree helped start his career as a singer.

Opening night drew a large crowd, and he became popular with the audience by performing Stephen Foster songs in blackface.

The show closed after performances. After Vera Violetta closed, Jolson starred in another musical, The Whirl of Society , propelling his career on Broadway to new heights.

During his time at the Winter Garden, Jolson told the audience, "You ain't heard nothing yet" before performing additional songs.

In the play, he debuted his signature blackface character "Gus. In , Robinson Crusoe, Jr. In , his acting career was pushed further after he starred in the hit musical Sinbad.

Jolson added " My Mammy ". By , he had become the biggest star on Broadway. His next play, Bombo , became so successful that it went beyond Broadway to performances nationwide.

At the age of 35, Jolson was the youngest man in American history to have a theatre named after him. Out of fear, he lost his voice backstage and begged the stagehands not to raise the curtains.

But when the curtains went up, he "was [still] standing in the wings trembling and sweating. In March , he moved the production to the larger Century Theater for a benefit performance to aid injured Jewish veterans of World War I.

The reviewer for The New York Times wrote, "He returned like the circus, bigger and brighter and newer than ever Last night's audience was flatteringly unwilling to go home, and when the show proper was over, Jolson reappeared before the curtain and sang more songs, old and new.

To watch him is to marvel at his humorous vitality. He is the old-time minstrel man turned to modern account. With a song, a word, or even a suggestion he calls forth spontaneous laughter.

And here you have the definition of a born comedian. This simulation of a stage performance by Jolson was presented in a program of musical shorts, demonstrating the Vitaphone sound-film process.

The soundtrack for A Plantation Act was considered lost in but was found in and restored by The Vitaphone Project. Warner Bros. He told Jessel that he would have to sing in the movie, and Jessel balked, allowing Warner to replace him with Jolson.

Jessel never got over it and often said that Warner gave the role to Jolson because he agreed to help finance the film.

Harry Warner 's daughter, Doris, remembered the opening night, and said that when the picture started she was still crying over the loss of her beloved uncle Sam.

He was planning to be at the performance but died suddenly at the age of 40, the day before. But halfway through the minute movie she began to be overtaken by a sense that something remarkable was happening.

Jolson's "Wait a minute" line provoked shouts of pleasure and applause from the audience, who were dumbfounded by seeing and hearing someone speak on a film for the first time.

So much so that the double-entendre was missed at first. After each Jolson song, the audience applauded. Excitement mounted as the film progressed, and when Jolson began his scene with Eugenie Besserer , "the audience became hysterical.

According to film historian Scott Eyman , "by the film's end, the Warner brothers had shown an audience something they had never known, moved them in a way they hadn't expected.

The tumultuous ovation at curtain proved that Jolson was not merely the right man for the part of Jackie Rabinowitz, alias Jack Robin; he was the right man for the entire transition from silent fantasy to talking realism.

The audience, transformed into what one critic called, 'a milling, battling mob' stood, stamped, and cheered 'Jolson, Jolson, Jolson! Vitaphone was intended for musical renditions, and The Jazz Singer follows this principle, with only the musical sequences using live sound recording.

The moviegoers were electrified when the silent actions were interrupted periodically for a song sequence with real singing and sound.

Jolson's dynamic voice, physical mannerisms, and charisma held the audience spellbound. Costar May McAvoy , according to author A.

Scott Berg, could not help sneaking into theaters day after day as the film was being run. In that moment just before 'Toot, Toot, Tootsie,' she remembered, 'A miracle occurred.

Moving pictures really came alive. To see the expressions on their faces, when Joley spoke to them And when he came out with 'Mammy,' and went down on his knees to his Mammy, it was just dynamite.

Not only the eyes are a window on the soul. With Warner Bros. Al Jolson made his first "all-talking" picture, The Singing Fool , the story of an ambitious entertainer who insisted on going on with the show even as his small son lay dying.

The film was even more popular than The Jazz Singer. Jolson continued to make features for Warner Bros. A restored version of Mammy , with Jolson in Technicolor sequences, was first screened in However, these films gradually proved a cycle of diminishing returns due to their comparative sameness, the regal salary that Jolson demanded, and a shift in public taste away from vaudeville musicals as the s began.

Jolson returned to Broadway and starred in the unsuccessful Wonder Bar. It was directed by Lewis Milestone and written by Ben Hecht. Hecht was also active in the promotion of civil rights : "Hecht film stories featuring black characters included Hallelujah, I'm a Bum , co-starring Edgar Connor as Jolson's sidekick, in a politically savvy rhymed dialogue over Richard Rodgers music.

The New York Times reviewer wrote, "The picture, some persons may be glad to hear, has no Mammy song. It is Mr. Jolson's best film and well it might be, for that clever director, Lewis Milestone , guided its destiny Wonder entertains and banters with his international clientele.

Romance, flash, dash, class, color, songs, star-studded talent and almost every known requisite to assure sturdy attention and attendance It's Jolson's comeback picture in every respect.

Jolson's last Warner vehicle was The Singing Kid , a parody of Jolson's stage persona he plays a character named Al Jackson in which he mocks his stage histrionics and taste for "mammy" songs—the latter via a number by E.

According to jazz historian Michael Alexander, Jolson had once griped that "People have been making fun of Mammy songs, and I don't really think that it's right that they should, for after all, Mammy songs are the fundamental songs of our country.

In this film, he notes, "Jolson had the confidence to rhyme 'Mammy' with 'Uncle Sammy'", adding "Mammy songs, along with the vocation 'Mammy singer', were inventions of the Jewish Jazz Age.

The film also gave a boost to the career of black singer and bandleader Cab Calloway, who performed a number of songs alongside Jolson.

In his autobiography, Calloway writes about this episode:. I'd heard Al Jolson was doing a new film on the Coast, and since Duke Ellington and his band had done a film, wasn't it possible for me and the band to do this one with Jolson.

Frenchy got on the phone to California, spoke to someone connected with the film and the next thing I knew the band and I were booked into Chicago on our way to California for the film, The Singing Kid.

We had a hell of a time, although I had some pretty rough arguments with Harold Arlen, who had written the music. Arlen was the songwriter for many of the finest Cotton Club revues, but he had done some interpretations for The Singing Kid that I just couldn't go along with.

He was trying to change my style and I was fighting it. Finally, Jolson stepped in and said to Arlen, 'Look, Cab knows what he wants to do; let him do it his way.

And talk about integration: Hell, when the band and I got out to Hollywood, we were treated like pure royalty. Here were Jolson and I living in adjacent penthouses in a very plush hotel.

We were costars in the film so we received equal treatment, no question about it. The Singing Kid was not one of the studio's major attractions it was released by the First National subsidiary , and Jolson did not even rate star billing.

The movie also became the first important role for future child star Sybil Jason in a scene directed by Busby Berkeley. Jason remembers that Berkeley worked on the film although he is not credited.

It stars Jolson, Alice Faye and Tyrone Power , and included many of Jolson's best known songs, although several songs were cut to shorten the movie's length, including " April Showers " and " Avalon ".

Reviewers wrote, "Mr Jolson's singing of Mammy , California, Here I Come and others is something for the memory book" [46] and "Of the three co-stars this is Jolson's picture After the George M.

It was directed by Alfred E. With Jolson providing almost all the vocals, and Columbia contract player Larry Parks playing Jolson, The Jolson Story became one of the biggest box-office hits of the year.

It is not surprising, therefore, that while making The Jolson Story , I spent days before the cameras and lost eighteen pounds in weight. From a review in Variety :.

But the real star of the production is that Jolson voice and that Jolson medley. It was good showmanship to cast this film with lesser people, particularly Larry Parks as the mammy kid As for Jolson's voice, it has never been better.

Thus the magic of science has produced a composite whole to eclipse the original at his most youthful best. Parks received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor.

Although the year-old Jolson was too old to play a younger version of himself in the movie, he persuaded the studio to let him appear in one musical sequence, " Swanee ", shot entirely in long shot, with Jolson in blackface singing and dancing onto the runway leading into the middle of the theater.

In the wake of the film's success and his World War II tours, Jolson became a top singer among the American public once more.

According to film historian Krin Gabbard, The Jolson Story goes further than any of the earlier films in exploring the significance of blackface and the relationships that whites have developed with blacks in the area of music.

To him, the film seems to imply an inclination of white performers, like Jolson, who are possessed with "the joy of life and enough sensitivity, to appreciate the musical accomplishments of blacks".

While wandering around New Orleans before a show with Dockstader's Minstrels, he enters a small club where a group of black jazz musicians are performing.

Jolson has a revelation, that the staid repertoire of the minstrel troupe can be transformed by actually playing black music in blackface.

He tells Dockstader that he wants to sing what he has just experienced: 'I heard some music tonight, something they call jazz. Some fellows just make it up as they go along.

They pick it up out of the air. Jolson's success is built on anticipating what Americans really want. Dockstader performs the inevitable function of the guardian of the status quo, whose hidebound commitment to what is about to become obsolete reinforces the audience's sympathy with the forward-looking hero.

This has been a theme which was traditionally "dear to the hearts of the men who made the movies. Extra police were on duty as crowds jammed the streets and sidewalks at each theater Jolson visited.

Jolson had been a popular guest star on radio since its earliest days, including on NBC's The Dodge Victory Hour January , singing from a New Orleans hotel to an audience of 35 million via 47 radio stations.

His own s shows included Presenting Al Jolson and Shell Chateau , and he was the host of the Kraft Music Hall from to , with Oscar Levant as a sardonic, piano-playing sidekick.

Jolson's s career revival was nothing short of a success despite the competition of younger performers such as Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra , and he was voted the "Most Popular Male Vocalist" in by a poll in Variety.

When Jolson appeared on Bing Crosby's radio show, he attributed his receiving the award to his being the only singer of any importance not to make a record of " Mule Train ", which had been a widely covered hit of that year four different versions, one of them by Crosby, had made the top ten on the charts.

Jolson joked about how his voice had deepened with age, saying "I got the clippetys all right, but I can't clop like I used to.

In addition to his contribution to motion pictures as a performer, he is responsible for the discovery of two major stars of the golden age of Hollywood.

He purchased the rights to a play he saw on Broadway and then sold the movie rights to Jack Warner Warner Brothers which was the studio that had made The Jazz Singer with the stipulation that two of the original cast members reprise their roles in the movie.

The play became the movie Penny Arcade , and the actors were Joan Blondell and James Cagney , who both went on to become contract players for the studio.

The two were major ingredients in gangster movies, which were lucrative for the studio. Cagney won his Academy Award for his role in Warner Brothers' Yankee Doodle Dandy , which at the time was the studio's highest-grossing movie.

The award is rarely given to performers in musicals. Ironically, Cagney, who became known for his tough guy movie roles, also made a contribution to movie musicals, like the man who had discovered him.

While Jolson is credited for appearing in the first movie musical, Cagney's Academy Award-winning movie was the first movie Ted Turner chose to colorize.

Even though he had several TV offers at the time, Jolson was apprehensive about how his larger than life performances would come across in a medium as intimate as television.

He finally relented in , when it was announced that Jolson had signed an agreement to appear on the CBS television network, presumably in a series of specials.

However, he died suddenly before production began. Japanese bombs on Pearl Harbor shook Jolson out of continuing moods of lethargy due to years of little activity and " Even before the U.

He requested permission to go anywhere in the world where there was an American serviceman who wouldn't mind listening to 'Sonny Boy' or 'Mammy' I went around during the last war and I saw that the boys needed something besides chow and drills.

I knew the same was true today, so I told the people in Washington that I would go anywhere and do an act for the Army. Roosevelt , volunteering "to head a committee for the entertainment of soldiers and said that he "would work without pay A few weeks later, he received his first tour schedule from the newly formed United Services Organization USO , "the group his letter to Early had helped create".

He did as many as four shows a day in the jungle outposts of Central America and covered the string of U.

Naval bases. He paid for part of the transportation out of his own pocket. Upon doing his first, and unannounced, show in England in , the reporter for the Hartford Courant wrote, " And pandemonium From an article in The New York Times :.

He [Jolson] has been to more Army camps and played to more soldiers than any other entertainer. He has crossed the Atlantic by plane to take song and cheer to the troops in Britain and Northern Ireland.

He has flown to the cold wastes of Alaska and the steaming forests of Trinidad. Nearly every camp in this country has heard him sing and tell funny stories.

Some of the unusual hardships of performing to active troops were described in an article he wrote for Variety , in In order to entertain all the boys After returning from a tour of overseas bases, the Regimental Hostess at one camp wrote to Jolson,.

Allow me to say on behalf of all the soldiers of the 33rd Infantry that you coming here is quite the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to us, and we think you're tops, not only as a performer, but as a person.

We unanimously elect you Public Morale Lifter No. S Army. Jolson was officially enlisted in the United Service Organizations USO , the organization which provided entertainment for American troops who served in combat overseas.

While touring in the Pacific, Jolson contracted malaria and had to have his left lung surgically removed. In , during a nationally broadcast testimonial dinner in New York City, given on his behalf, he received a special tribute from the American Veterans Committee in honor of his volunteer services during World War II.

But for four weeks there was nothing Finally, Louis A. Johnson , Secretary of Defense, sent Jolson a telegram. Who needs funds?

I got funds! I'll pay myself! On September 17, , a dispatch from 8th Army Headquarters, Korea, announced, "Al Jolson, the first top-flight entertainer to reach the war-front, landed here today by plane from Los Angeles Before returning to the U.

It was demolished by UN forces after the army made it safely across in order to prevent the Chinese from crossing.

Alistair Cooke wrote, "He [Jolson] had one last hour of glory. He offered to fly to Korea and entertain the troops hemmed in on the United Nations precarious August bridgehead.

The troops yelled for his appearance. He went down on his knee again and sang 'Mammy', and the troops wept and cheered. When he was asked what Korea was like he warmly answered, 'I am going to get back my income tax returns and see if I paid enough.

The screenplay was to be written by Herbert Baker and to co-star Dinah Shore. Two weeks after signing the agreement, he died of a heart attack in San Francisco.

A few months after his death, Defense Secretary George Marshall presented the Medal for Merit for Jolson, "to whom this country owes a debt which cannot be repaid".

The medal, carrying a citation noting that Jolson's "contribution to the U. Despite their close relationship while growing up, Harry Jolson Al's older brother did show some disdain for Jolsons's success over the years.

Even during their time with Jack Palmer, Jolson was rising in popularity while Harry was fading. After separating from "Al and Jack", Harry's career in show business sank.

On one occasion Harry offered to be Jolson's agent, but Jolson rejected the offer, worried about the pressure he would face from his producers for hiring his brother.

Shortly after Harry's wife Lillian died in , the brothers became close once again. Jolson's first marriage to Henrietta Keller took place in Alameda, California, on September 20, His name was given as Albert Jolson.

They divorced in In the summer of , Jolson met young tap dancer, and later actress, Ruby Keeler , in Los Angeles Jolson would claim it was at Texas Guinan 's night club and was dazzled by her on sight.

Three weeks later, Jolson saw a production of George M. Cohan 's Rise of Rosie O'Reilly , and noticed she was in the show's cast.

Now knowing she was going about her Broadway career, Jolson attended another one of her shows, Show Girl , and rose from the audience and engaged in her duet of "Liza".

After this moment, the show's producer, Florenz Ziegfeld , asked Jolson to join the cast and continue to sing duets with Keeler.

Jolson accepted Ziegfeld's offer and during their tour with Ziegfeld, the two started dating and were married on September 21, After their divorce, she remarried, to John Homer Lowe, with whom she would have four children and remain married until his death in He became fascinated with her and more than a year later he was able to track her down and hired her as an actress while he served as a producer at Columbia Pictures.

After Jolson, whose health was still scarred from his previous battle with malaria , was hospitalized in the winter of , Erle visited him and the two quickly began a relationship.

They were married on March 22, During their marriage, the Jolsons adopted two children, Asa Jr. After a year and a half of marriage, his new wife had never seen him perform in front of an audience, and the first occasion came unplanned.

Jolson and his wife were in the audience with a thousand others, and George Jessel was the emcee. Without warning, during the middle of the show, Jessel said, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is the easiest introduction I ever had to make.

The world's greatest entertainer, Al Jolson. The place is going wild. Jolson gets up, takes a bow, sits down It's chaos, and slowly, he seems to relent.

He walks up onto the stage Then he says, 'I'd like to introduce you to my bride,' and this lovely young thing gets up and takes a bow.

The audience doesn't care about the bride, they don't even care about Sophie Tucker. Jolson was a Republican who supported Warren G. Harding in and Calvin Coolidge in for president.

As "one of the biggest stars of his time, [he] worked his magic singing Harding, You're the Man for Us to enthralled audiences Jolson, like the men who ran the studios, was the rare showbiz Republican.

The dust and dirt of the Korean front, from which he had returned a few weeks earlier, had settled in his remaining lung and he was close to exhaustion.

While playing cards in his suite at the St. His last words were said to be "Oh After his wife received the news of his death by phone, she went into shock, and required family members to stay with her.

It became one of the biggest funerals in show business history. He was a casualty of the [Korean] war. The caption read, "The Song Is Ended.

Newspaper columnist and radio reporter Walter Winchell said:. One day, to liven up his act, he went on stage in blackface with his face made up to resemble an African American and sang "Rosey My Posey" in a Southern accent.

He took a song Al Jolson. Courtesy of the Library of Congress. He also appealed to the feelings of the audience with his sentimental song deliveries.

Although Jolson did not receive star billing until in Dancing Around, the audiences clearly came to see him. He played to overflowing houses in such shows as Robinson Crusoe, Jr.

Most of these shows had no script and no scheduled list of songs. Jolson would come out on stage after the final act to talk to the audience and sing what pleased him.

After each song he told the audiences, "You ain't heard nothing yet. At the end he would get up and sing the last chorus with his hands spread wide and his face tilted upward.

Jolson worked constantly, doing a tour of his one-man show, then a vaudeville tour, and then a Sunday theater series. Finally he went to Hollywood to make movies.

The film, the story of a rabbi's son who becomes an actor against his father's wishes, was a great success. People assumed the movie was based on Jolson's own life, a myth that he encouraged.

Despite the popularity of the film and its follow-up, The Singing Fool , Jolson did not succeed in film. He made several more films, but his personal appeal to an audience never really came through on the screen.

His career declined in the s, but he continued to perform on radio and entertained soldiers during World War II —45; a war fought mostly in Europe between the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union on one side, and Germany, Italy, and Japan on the other.

He also campaigned for several presidents by singing at rallies. In The Al Jolson Story, a fictional version of his life, was released and was an immediate success.

In Jolson Sings Again, another smash hit, was released. Jolson was married four times, and he had three children. Freedland, Michael.

The Jolson Story (Movie) 1946

But just before it was theatrically released, producer, Warner' His appearance in that film, nowadays considered a somewhat creaky, stodgy and primitive museum piece, electrified audiences and caused a sensation.

Jolson was bigger than ever and Hollywood came a-calling. However, Jolson on film was a pale version of Jolson on stage. His screen appearances, with some exceptions, are stiff and wooden.

Though he continued into the s to star on radio, he was no longer quite the star he had been. Always a favorite with audiences, he continued to entertain in the United States when he met his fourth wife, Erle Chenault Galbraith , an x-ray technician.

A restored version of Mammy , with Jolson in Technicolor sequences, was first screened in However, these films gradually proved a cycle of diminishing returns due to their comparative sameness, the regal salary that Jolson demanded, and a shift in public taste away from vaudeville musicals as the s began.

Jolson returned to Broadway and starred in the unsuccessful Wonder Bar. It was directed by Lewis Milestone and written by Ben Hecht.

Hecht was also active in the promotion of civil rights : "Hecht film stories featuring black characters included Hallelujah, I'm a Bum , co-starring Edgar Connor as Jolson's sidekick, in a politically savvy rhymed dialogue over Richard Rodgers music.

The New York Times reviewer wrote, "The picture, some persons may be glad to hear, has no Mammy song.

It is Mr. Jolson's best film and well it might be, for that clever director, Lewis Milestone , guided its destiny Wonder entertains and banters with his international clientele.

Romance, flash, dash, class, color, songs, star-studded talent and almost every known requisite to assure sturdy attention and attendance It's Jolson's comeback picture in every respect.

Jolson's last Warner vehicle was The Singing Kid , a parody of Jolson's stage persona he plays a character named Al Jackson in which he mocks his stage histrionics and taste for "mammy" songs—the latter via a number by E.

According to jazz historian Michael Alexander, Jolson had once griped that "People have been making fun of Mammy songs, and I don't really think that it's right that they should, for after all, Mammy songs are the fundamental songs of our country.

In this film, he notes, "Jolson had the confidence to rhyme 'Mammy' with 'Uncle Sammy'", adding "Mammy songs, along with the vocation 'Mammy singer', were inventions of the Jewish Jazz Age.

The film also gave a boost to the career of black singer and bandleader Cab Calloway, who performed a number of songs alongside Jolson.

In his autobiography, Calloway writes about this episode:. I'd heard Al Jolson was doing a new film on the Coast, and since Duke Ellington and his band had done a film, wasn't it possible for me and the band to do this one with Jolson.

Frenchy got on the phone to California, spoke to someone connected with the film and the next thing I knew the band and I were booked into Chicago on our way to California for the film, The Singing Kid.

We had a hell of a time, although I had some pretty rough arguments with Harold Arlen, who had written the music. Arlen was the songwriter for many of the finest Cotton Club revues, but he had done some interpretations for The Singing Kid that I just couldn't go along with.

He was trying to change my style and I was fighting it. Finally, Jolson stepped in and said to Arlen, 'Look, Cab knows what he wants to do; let him do it his way.

And talk about integration: Hell, when the band and I got out to Hollywood, we were treated like pure royalty. Here were Jolson and I living in adjacent penthouses in a very plush hotel.

We were costars in the film so we received equal treatment, no question about it. The Singing Kid was not one of the studio's major attractions it was released by the First National subsidiary , and Jolson did not even rate star billing.

The movie also became the first important role for future child star Sybil Jason in a scene directed by Busby Berkeley.

Jason remembers that Berkeley worked on the film although he is not credited. It stars Jolson, Alice Faye and Tyrone Power , and included many of Jolson's best known songs, although several songs were cut to shorten the movie's length, including " April Showers " and " Avalon ".

Reviewers wrote, "Mr Jolson's singing of Mammy , California, Here I Come and others is something for the memory book" [46] and "Of the three co-stars this is Jolson's picture After the George M.

It was directed by Alfred E. With Jolson providing almost all the vocals, and Columbia contract player Larry Parks playing Jolson, The Jolson Story became one of the biggest box-office hits of the year.

It is not surprising, therefore, that while making The Jolson Story , I spent days before the cameras and lost eighteen pounds in weight.

From a review in Variety :. But the real star of the production is that Jolson voice and that Jolson medley.

It was good showmanship to cast this film with lesser people, particularly Larry Parks as the mammy kid As for Jolson's voice, it has never been better.

Thus the magic of science has produced a composite whole to eclipse the original at his most youthful best. Parks received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor.

Although the year-old Jolson was too old to play a younger version of himself in the movie, he persuaded the studio to let him appear in one musical sequence, " Swanee ", shot entirely in long shot, with Jolson in blackface singing and dancing onto the runway leading into the middle of the theater.

In the wake of the film's success and his World War II tours, Jolson became a top singer among the American public once more. According to film historian Krin Gabbard, The Jolson Story goes further than any of the earlier films in exploring the significance of blackface and the relationships that whites have developed with blacks in the area of music.

To him, the film seems to imply an inclination of white performers, like Jolson, who are possessed with "the joy of life and enough sensitivity, to appreciate the musical accomplishments of blacks".

While wandering around New Orleans before a show with Dockstader's Minstrels, he enters a small club where a group of black jazz musicians are performing.

Jolson has a revelation, that the staid repertoire of the minstrel troupe can be transformed by actually playing black music in blackface.

He tells Dockstader that he wants to sing what he has just experienced: 'I heard some music tonight, something they call jazz. Some fellows just make it up as they go along.

They pick it up out of the air. Jolson's success is built on anticipating what Americans really want. Dockstader performs the inevitable function of the guardian of the status quo, whose hidebound commitment to what is about to become obsolete reinforces the audience's sympathy with the forward-looking hero.

This has been a theme which was traditionally "dear to the hearts of the men who made the movies.

Extra police were on duty as crowds jammed the streets and sidewalks at each theater Jolson visited. Jolson had been a popular guest star on radio since its earliest days, including on NBC's The Dodge Victory Hour January , singing from a New Orleans hotel to an audience of 35 million via 47 radio stations.

His own s shows included Presenting Al Jolson and Shell Chateau , and he was the host of the Kraft Music Hall from to , with Oscar Levant as a sardonic, piano-playing sidekick.

Jolson's s career revival was nothing short of a success despite the competition of younger performers such as Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra , and he was voted the "Most Popular Male Vocalist" in by a poll in Variety.

When Jolson appeared on Bing Crosby's radio show, he attributed his receiving the award to his being the only singer of any importance not to make a record of " Mule Train ", which had been a widely covered hit of that year four different versions, one of them by Crosby, had made the top ten on the charts.

Jolson joked about how his voice had deepened with age, saying "I got the clippetys all right, but I can't clop like I used to.

In addition to his contribution to motion pictures as a performer, he is responsible for the discovery of two major stars of the golden age of Hollywood.

He purchased the rights to a play he saw on Broadway and then sold the movie rights to Jack Warner Warner Brothers which was the studio that had made The Jazz Singer with the stipulation that two of the original cast members reprise their roles in the movie.

The play became the movie Penny Arcade , and the actors were Joan Blondell and James Cagney , who both went on to become contract players for the studio.

The two were major ingredients in gangster movies, which were lucrative for the studio. Cagney won his Academy Award for his role in Warner Brothers' Yankee Doodle Dandy , which at the time was the studio's highest-grossing movie.

The award is rarely given to performers in musicals. Ironically, Cagney, who became known for his tough guy movie roles, also made a contribution to movie musicals, like the man who had discovered him.

While Jolson is credited for appearing in the first movie musical, Cagney's Academy Award-winning movie was the first movie Ted Turner chose to colorize.

Even though he had several TV offers at the time, Jolson was apprehensive about how his larger than life performances would come across in a medium as intimate as television.

He finally relented in , when it was announced that Jolson had signed an agreement to appear on the CBS television network, presumably in a series of specials.

However, he died suddenly before production began. Japanese bombs on Pearl Harbor shook Jolson out of continuing moods of lethargy due to years of little activity and " Even before the U.
