Al Jolson reprises his role as Jakie Rabinowitz in this special audio edition of the film that forever changed the way we watch movies.

For generations, the Rabinowitz men have been cantors in the synagogue—but not Jakie. He is passionate about jazz and ragtime music. After bitter arguments with his father, he leaves home to make it on his own. He finds opportunities, but he is faced with the difficult task of balancing his career, his relationship with Mary, and the memories of his family.

About the Author

Samson Raphaelson (1894–1983) earned his place in the history of American film as the man who created The Jazz Singer. His career saw enormous success in the 1930s when he juggled Broadway comedies such as Young Love, The Wooden Slipper, and Accent on Youth with a burgeoning career as a screenwriter, collaborating with director Ernst Lubitsch on nine films, including Heaven Can Wait and The Shop Around the Corner.

About the Narrator

Al Jolson (1886–1950) was a Russian-born singer, songwriter, and blackface comedian who performed in vaudeville and minstrel shows in the United States and starred in The Jazz Singer, the first feature film with synchronized speech. He went on to appear in films such as The Singing Fool and Swanee River, and he provided the voice-over for The Jolson Story, a film based on his life.
