Storyline

"All aboard," calls a voice off camera and a train engine appears. Then, we're in an elegant room with a chandelier where Paul Tremaine is directing the Aristocrats in their arrangement of "I've Been Working on the Railroad." It's a 15-piece orchestra. They follow with "Road to Mandalay" and a medley of songs one might hear on a Mississippi riverboat. The medley includes "Old Kentucky Home," "Oh Susanna," and "Mississippi Mud," among others. The music includes a few vocals from a trio of musicians. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Jazz Singer Disc 3
27 February 2008 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

At the Seashore (1929)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Paul Tremaine and His Aristocrats (1929)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Child Wonder, The (1929)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Lambchops (1929)

*** (out of 4)

Happy Hottentots, The (1930) ** 1/2 (out of 4)

The final selection of shorts from The Jazz Singer Collection features some pretty good stuff. At the Seashore is a stand up act, which has a few laughs, although the two stars can be a bit annoying. The standout here is a male who shows up at the end and it's clearly a spoof on gay people as is the final joke, which is certainly politically incorrect. The Paul Tremaine short is probably the best I've seen as it features a loud, rocking jazz version of "I've Been Working on the Railroad". Lambchops features Burns and Allen doing a very funny comic routine followed by a song.
