Synopsis: Al Jolson, celebrated star of the world’s first ‘talking picture’ and self-proclaimed World’s Greatest Entertainer, blazed many trails through show business – and today his name still conjures up the glamour of Broadway and the silver screen. This is the definitive biography of a man who became a household name in his own lifetime. The first to speak in the movies; the first to appear on American television; the first to release a long-playing record in Britain: this great performer’s achievements were unique. Jolson’s lifelong love affair with his audience, his four marriages, his amazing ego, and his traumatic personal life – all are described in detail, along with many anecdotes and reminiscences from those who knew, loved, and worked with him. This is the eighth edition of this biography – published as a result of a clamour from Jolson fans to still be able to read about this remarkable performer. He personified show business in an age when people waited in line to be able to see their favourite entertainer live on stage.
