Plot SummaryThe film that started a lasting craze -- the talking picture.| Al Jolson made his film debut -- and became a star -- playing the role of a cantor's son who'd rather be a singing sensation on Broadway than follow in his father's footsteps. But forsaking his religious duties may cost him his family's love.
