Title: The Jazz Singer
Type: Drama / Musical
Colour: Black and White / Sound
Director: Alan Crosland
A young Jewish boy (Al Jolson) rebels against his father who want him to follow him as a cantor so that he can have a career as a Jazz singer aided by a dancer (Mary McAvoy). This film is notable as being billed as the first talkie film, though most of it is a silent film with the sound being just a few bits of dialogue (including Jolson's catch phrase "you ain't heard nothing yet") and the songs.
