Big Boy DVD
Decidedly un-PC in the modern era, this rousing musical film starring Al Jolson features the legendary performer donning blackface to portray Gus, a stable hand who hopes to ride Big Boy, one of his boss's horses, in the Kentucky Derby. Just when it looks like Gus will get his wish, some unscrupulous mobsters scheme to dismount him! Songs include "Tomorrow Is Another Day" and "Liza Lee." With Claudia Dell, Lew Harvey. 68 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
