Movie Summary

Director:
Michael Curtiz
Released:
1953
Rating:
Not Available
The movie that broke the sound barrier! Vaudeville crooner Al Jolson stars as a Jewish cantor's son who goes against his family's traditions to make it in show business. The first successful sound feature heralded the end of silent films. Co-starring William Demerest (Uncle Charley of TV's "My Three Sons"). Look for a young Myrna Loy ("The Thin Man"). Received an Oscar nod for Best Adapted Screenplay and features a collection of oldies ("My Mammy," "Toot, Toot, Tootsie Goodbye"). Recently selected as one of the top 100 American films of all time by the prestigious American Film Institute. Inducted into the Library of Congress National Film Registry.
