Al Jolson stars in the title role, the Jewish cantor's son who would rather sing on stage than in temple. Clashing repeatedly with his father (Warner Oland) over his desire to become a jazz singer, Jolson leaves home to pursue show business─adopting a stage name and meeting a veteran performer (May McAvoy) who brings him to a turning point in his life. Songs include "My Mammy," "Toot Toot Tootsie," and "Blue Skies." This groundbreaking film that brought sound to the movies co-stars William Demarest, Richard Tucker. 88 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
