Al Jolson: A Bio-Discography

"What a life it was, and what a career...I wouldn't have dreamed that I could get lost in the pages of a bio-discography, but that's exactly what happened when I started to thumb this volume." —from the foreword by Leonard Maltin Who could forget Rock-a-bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody or The Jazz Singer? Al Jolson (1886-1950) was billed as "The World's Greatest Entertainer" and to this day is still considered the standard by which entertainers' goals are measured. He achieved the top spot in virtually every medium in which he performed: stage, film, records, and radio. This is a comprehensive study of Jolson's career and touring data, providing extensive information on each of the performances. Bibliography and indexes.
