The Jazz Singer (1927)

The Jazz Singer (31:34)

The Jazz Singer

The 5th flick in The Top 100 Project sees the cinema start to talk…and The Jazz Singer shows ’em how! Lend us your ears as we break down the technical achievement of bringing a voice to the voiceless, as we mock the maudlin, and as we remind everyone that a Simpsons episode hit on the same story points just as effectively & way more funnily. There might even be a little vaudevillian-inspired singing (prepare to cover your ears)!
