The Jolson Story: Larry Parks gives the performance of his life in the story of Al Jolson, from his meteoric rise to fame, to the doubts and depression that emerged later in his career. One of the greatest musicals ever made, The Jolson Story is an electrifying cavalcade of lavish production numbers with an all-star cast. Winning Academy Awards for Musical Scoring and Sound Recording, the film also received four Academy Award nominations in 1946, including Best Actor for Larry Parks' portrayal of Al Jolson. Jolson Sings Again: Larry Parks repeats his unforgettable role as Al Jolson in this musical extravaganza. The dramatic story of one of America's all-time favourite entertainers continues in this captivating motion picture. The drama unfolds when Jolson exits retirement and heads back to Broadway where he discovers that musical styles have changed and his exuberant brand of minstrel jazz no longer pulls top-billing. Discouraged and tired of a life of wine, women and little song - Jolson turns to his friend and manager (William Demarest) who enlists him to entertain troops during the war. There he falls in love with and marries a beautiful army nurse (Barbara Hale) who encourages Al to sing again. Get set for an exciting array of Jolson's most popular songs, including 'Baby Face' and 'Sonny Boy', in this electrifying and true-to-life story as Jolson Sings Again.
