Meyer Levin (Patterson Murphy) Esquire Magazine The story is stale, the picture is long, and the production numbers are not so hot... Apr 16, 2020 Full Review Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine It has both story and show value, it is lively and well balanced, and generally speaking, it recognizes that there are other ways of making an audience forget the passage of time besides slugging it into unconsciousness with huge ensemble numbers. Oct 4, 2019 Full Review Helen Brown Norden Vanity Fair Jolson is still a great entertainer-flashing that unique and personal genius which made him one of the great names in show business.

Audience Member OK backstage musical Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Forget the melodramatic plot and enjoy the music: Jolson sings "A Quarter to Nine" and "A Latin from Manhattan," and Helen Morgan shines while singing ""The Little Things You Used to Do." Jolson and Keeler's only starring film together (they were married in real life). Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Decent musical/comedy/drama, nothing extraordinary however. Good cast, but the supporting cast overshadows stars Al Jolson and Ruby Keeler. Glenda Farrell, Barton MacLaine, Akim Tamiroff, Helen Morgan and especially Patsy Kelly are terrific. It has good tunes, reasonably good musical numbers and a fun story. Light and entertaining.
