Young Rudy Wissler loaned his voice to Scotty Beckett who played Al Jolson as a young boy in THE JOLSON STORY (1946). At that time, Rudy's wonderful work remained uncredited as the studio did not want dubbing artists to be recognized - a common practice at the time.
We met Rudy in Philadelphia in 2006, shortly after we had started to work on our upcoming documentary ON THE ROAD TO AL JOLSON.
Rudy was a sweet man with a wonderful voice as you can hear in our short trailer.If you'd like a copy of the film, please visit our website.
