    Description

    The Singing Fool (Warner Brothers, 1927). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Released the same year as The Jazz Singer, this film also helped introduce talking pictures to the general public and paved the way for the acceptance of sound. A massive hit, this picture about a singing waiter (Al Jolson) who becomes a Broadway star, grossed more than four million dollars, making it the most successful picture in Warner Brothers' history to that time. Jolson introduced the song "Sonny Boy" in this picture, a tune that would become one of his trademarks. Professional restoration has this rare title card displaying nicely, having addressed light stains in the upper right, small tears in the borders, a small hole in the bottom right, and a diagonal crease. Fine.
