The Silver Screen: The Film Career of Al Jolson

      MAMMY, 1930   

"Mammy" was Al Jolson's fourth feature film, released by Warner Brothers on March 26, 1930.

The film, an all-talkie, musical drama, also includes some Technicolor sequences.

This film parallels Jolson's early career with the Minstrels. Most notably, "Mammy" includes songs by Irving Berlin such as "Let Me Sing and I'm Happy," "Who Paid the Rent for Mrs. Rip Van Winkle?", "Yes, We Have No Bananas," "In the Morning," "Swanee River," and "To My Mammy."
















This exhibition was made possible in part with the cooperation of the International Al Jolson Society.
