Amoeba Review

3-Disc, 90th Anniversary Digibook.

When The Jazz Singer was released in theaters, the future of Hollywood changed. For the first time in a feature film, an actor spoke on screen, stunning audiences and leaving the silent era behind. Al Jolson was the history-making actor playing the son of a Jewish cantor must defy his father in order to pursue his dream of being in show business. Now remastered and restored for hi-def and presented with a massive Blu-ray book. The whole story can been seen (and heard) here. It's more than just history - it's pure entertainment!
