Synopsis

A double bill of films making up a biopic of Broadway entertainer Al Jolson. In 'The Jolson Story', young Jolson (Scotty Beckett, and later Larry Parks, whose voice is dubbed for the musical numbers by Jolson himself) has an ambition to perform in vaudeville, although his parents would prefer that he pursued an alternative career. However, Jolson pursues his dream, becoming the biggest Broadway star of his time. 'Jolson Sings Again' chronicles Jolson's 1940s comeback, finding popularity anew as he works to entertain the US forces during World War Two.
