I am so happy that his mommy let him make this short....
5 December 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Eddie White is an odd act in this Vitaphone short. He looks like a nice Jewish teenager--perhaps 15 or 16. And as far as the act goes, it's like watching Al Jolson Jr. or George Jessel Jr. as he essentially does their acts. Eddie sings a few songs with real gusto (in other words, with a lot of energy...much like the singing of Baby Rose Marie) and then tells some jokes. Oddly, one was a Jewish joke...which is strange since he is Jewish (Ben Mankiewicz talked about this at the introduction). And, it culminates with White singing Jolson's signature tune, "Mammy", but thankfully without doing it in black-face!!

Overall, this seems as if someone filmed some nice kid performing for his family and friends in his living room. So good of Eddie's mommy to let him make a film version of this! Not terrible...but not all that good, either. But, he did seem like a nice kid!
