DescriptionThe Singing Fool (Warner Brothers, 1927). Fine+. Window Card (14" X 22").
Al Jolson is a singing waiter who becomes a Broadway star in this incredibly successful hit that helped introduce talking pictures to the general public. Released the same year as The Jazz Singer, Jolson would introduce the song "Sonny Boy" in the film, a tune that would become one of his trademarks. Featuring a playful portrait image of Jolson, the window card shows mild edge wear, small chips and paper lifts, a few creases, and foxing. Also visible are pinholes, as well as some smudges and stains.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
