Plot Synopsis:

The film that started a lasting craze -- the talking picture.
Al Jolson made his film debut -- and became a star -- playing the role of a cantor's son who'd rather be a singing sensation on Broadway than follow in his father's footsteps. But forsaking his religious duties may cost him his family's love.

Production Notes:

  • THE JAZZ SINGER was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1996.
  • Film debut for Al Jolson.
  • Nugent Slaughter won an Academy Award for Engineering Effects, and Warner Brothers received a special award for producing this, the first talking picture.
  • Though there were one or two sound pictures prior to THE JAZZ SINGER, this film effectively ended the era of silent movies. It did not have talking throughout, only a few musical and conversational sequences. But audiences loved it, and soon all the studios were rushing to convert to sound.
