The real life-story of Al Jolson, depicting his childlike desperation need to please in his extravagant stage presentations, but having the courage to take on the warts and all. Privately Jolson was an ego with tonsils - a man who could ruthlessly steal other peoples’ songs, hijack their careers and destroy their affections. The story opens in the 1920s with his enormous success on Broadway and the first talking pictures and tells of his monstrous behaviour to his agent, managers and his much abused third wife, Ruby Keeler. The second act moves to the 1940s when his career is in decline until Hollywood films a totally false bio-pic, “The Jolson Story” and he stages a legendary “comeback” at the Radio City Music Hall.
