Synopsis

Center stage, singing his heart out ' that's how fans love Al Jolson. And that's what they get in Mammy. It's an ideal showcase for the master showman, giving full rein to Jolson's unique talents in a melodramatic story of a lovelorn minstrel man innocently involved in murderous intrigue. But, as always with Jolson, the star is the story. Here he gets top support from Irving Berlin's jazzy-melodious score, including the jaunty Let Me Sing and I'm Happy. The film's most memorable sequences feature Jolson in full-scale recreations of a genuine minstrel show, complete with interlocutor-end man gags, dancers, tambourine chorus, tunes aplenty and a daffy mock-opera version of Yes, We Have No Bananas. NEWLY REMASTERED WITH RESTORED 2-COLOR TECHNICOLOR SEQUENCES!
