Jazz Singer Rip Off
10 April 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is a shameless rip off of The Jazz singer.Despite the fact that it was made 2 years later and was as they used to say "all talking all singing all dancing" it was a far worse film than the Jazz Singer.Indeed it takes mawkishness to new depths.Downey quits the show which is his big break to go and sing at the bedside of his dying mother,Beryl Mercer.As one author has put it she excels in whining.Of course she recovers.Downey gets huge publicity for his act and gets even better offers as a result of his selfless actions.Barbara Bennett appears in one of her few features before retirement.It is films like this that contributed to0 the early demise of the musical
