Movie Info

Jerry Golding (Danny Thomas) is a Jewish-American singer who has dreams of starring in musical theater, which upsets his traditional parents. His religiously conservative father, David (Eduard Franz), wants Jerry to follow in his footsteps as a cantor in their synagogue when he retires. When Jerry decides to enter show business after all, despite his father's wishes, David disowns him. Then his father becomes ill, and Jerry must weigh the importance of family versus success.

Critic Reviews for The Jazz Singer

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (1)

  • It's ragged and dull until the magical moment when Jolson turns to the camera to announce, "You ain't heard nothin' yet"-a line so loaded with unconscious irony that it still raises a few goose bumps.

    October 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A fine mixture of song and sentiment, this modern version of The Jazz Singer has all the heart quality of the original, emerging as a tender, poignant film.

Audience Reviews for The Jazz Singer

    Hokey but colorful. Danny Thomas wasn't much of an actor but he sang well enough, what matters more is that Peggy Lee is in the movie and sings several songs. That makes whatever malarkey you have to sit through worth it.
