    Description

    The Jazz Singer (Warner Brothers, 1927). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    As every movie fan knows, after over twenty years of silent films,The Jazz Singer was the first full-length sound feature and it began the revolution of talking pictures. Produced by Warner Brothers with their Vitaphone sound process, Al Jolson, some scenes performing in black face, speaks and sings for the first time! His first words were prophetic -- "Wait a minute, wait a minute, you ain't heard nothin' yet." The production costs for the film were $422,000, a large sum for the financially strapped studio, but the picture was a hit, creating a worldwide sensation, and virtually saving Warner Brothers. This lovely and rare lobby is considered one of the best from the set and pictures the scene where Jolson sings to his mother, a highlight of the synchronized sound moments. There are pinholes in the corners. Very Fine.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
