One of the greatest musicals ever made, THE JOLSTON STORY is an electrifying cavalcade of lavish production numbers with an all-star cast. Winning Academy Awards for Musical Scoring and Sound Recording, the film also received four Academy Award nominations in 1946, including Best Actor for Larry Parks' portrayal of Al Jolson. The film traces the meteoric singing/performing career of Asa Yoelson, a talented cantor's son determined to make it big in the "biz". After changing his name to Al Jolson, Asa captivates audiences everywhere as a spellbinding minstrel and jazz performer. Featuring 25 songs by Jolson and big hits such as "My Mammy" and "You Made Me Love You", THE JOLSON STORY is a compelling tribute to an incomparable performer once hailed as America's Greatest Entertainer!

Larry Parks reprises his unforgettable role as Al Jolson in the musical extravaganza JOLSON SINGS AGAIN! With Academy Award nominations for Best Writing, Cinematography and Musical Scoring, the dramatic story of one of America's all-time favourite entertainers continues in this captivating motion picture. The drama unfolds when Jolson exits retirement and heads back to Broadway, where he discovers that musical styles have changed and his exuberant brand of minstrel jazz no longer pulls top billing. Discouraged and tired of a life of wine, women and little song, Jolson turns to his friend and manager (William Demarest) who enlists him to entertain troops during the war. There he falls in love with and marries a beautiful army nurse (Barbara Hale), who encourages Al to sing again. Get set for an exciting array of Jolson's most popular songs in this electrifying and true-to-life story as JOLSON SINGS AGAIN!

The Jolson Story & Jolson Sings Again

This dvd was a brilliant purchase. It was for my nanny which has alzheimer's. She always loved this and we could not find it anywhere until i found it on your dvd. It made my nanny very happy to watch it and she remembers a lot about it and she watches it over and over again. I would defiantly buy off this site again as there is a lot of dvd at great prices that you cant get in shops.

The Jolson Story

The Jolson Story is a great film and the follow up was just as good. It takes me back to my younger days.
