Al Jolson's "second talkie" in Germany
After the big success of THE SINGING FOOL which premiered in Berlin on June 3rd, 1929, THE JAZZ SINGER celebrated its premiere in Berlin on November 26th, 1929. In 2007, Jens and I were looking for the original newspaper ads for THE JAZZ SINGER for screenings at movie theaters in our hometown Kiel in Northern Germany (in 1930).
Every day non-stop screenings from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m.

This time Al Jolson's elocution
leaves an even stronger impression than it does
in "The Singing Fool". His charm, his temper,
his personal performance abilities, seem to be so intuitively,
and its sound reproduction so vividly,
as if he were incarnately standing in front of us.
Every day non-stop screenings from 11 a.m.
until 11 p.m. Sunday starting at 4 p.m.
