Audience Reviews for Mammy
Entertaining musical numbers and rewarding melodrama make Mammy a fun example of early sound-era box office hits. The minstrel show surrounding the plot is disconcerting and offensive, especially by today's standards, but you'd be hard pressed to find any intentional mean-spirited feelings towards African Americans. It's a pity the show in the film centers around men in blackface, but the film's heart is in Jolson's sincere and energetic performance. The Warner Archieve's restoration is excellent on DVD and the technicolor sequences (badly damaged but better than completely lost) add an interesting element of film history and preservation.
