This series will look at the evolution of the American
movie musical. Each week, we will watch and learn
about an important film in the musical genre with an
introduction to each film that will include important
historical points, fun facts and short biographies of the
stars. Join us for a trip through Hollywood musical

The Jazz Singer (1927) – The
first “talking” film features Al
Jolson as a Jewish performer torn
between his faith and his love
of popular music. Historically
important because of the film’s
technical aspects but fun to see
and hear Jolson singing such
popular tunes as “Dirty Hands,
Dirty Face,” “Toot Toot Tootsie” and “My Mammy.”
