Trivia

Vernon Duke, the Russian-born songwriter mentioned in the film, studied music at the St. Petersburg Conservatory under his original name, Vladimir Dukelsky. One of his classmates was Sergei Prokofieff, who became a major classical composer: the two were lifelong friends and regularly wrote letters to each other until Prokofieff's death in 1953. (The letters were an important source for Harlow Robinson's biography of Prokofieff.) See more »

Goofs

The narration describes Al Jolson as one of America's leading vaudevillians. Jolson never played vaudeville; he went directly from performing in minstrel shows to appearing in Broadway musicals. See more »

Awesome DVD
27 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed this DVD. What a WONDERFUL tribute to our musical heritage.

I also watched Band of Brothers this week. Can it get any better than these two DVDs? Holy cow.
