After the The Jazz Singer, movie fans and Hollywood honchos knew what they wanted: more songs, more sentimentmore Al Jolson. So The Jazz Singer star became The Singing Fool in the heartfelt rags-to-riches-to-rags saga of Al Stone, a singing waiter who becomes a sensation, then loses everything when his two-timing wife walks out and takes Als beloved little boy with her. Along the way, Jolson belts out It All Depends on You, Sittin on Top of the World and Sonny Boy, the tearjerker that became the stars signature song. Audiences ate it up. Until the arrival in 1939 of Gone with the Wind, the most financially successful sound picture in Hollywoods history was The Singing Fool (The Hollywood Musical). **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
