Sound!

Antediluvian soundie cannot do justice to the enormous talent of Washington. Although the picture is sharp and the composition is excellent, Washngton's voice is washed out as he sings the title song while lounging against a tree and his 'mammy' berates him into getting a job moving empty crates in Harlem.
