The King of Jazz [1930] [DVD]

Paul Whiteman (actor)
Bing Crosby (actor)

Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 93 min
Quality: Very Good

Considering the array of talent involved and the fact the film was shot in the expensive two-tone Technicolor process, including the first-ever Technicolor animation, it's amazing that Universal entrusted this prestige project to debutant director John Murray Anderson, the only film he ever directed. However, he produces a stylish revue, showcasing the talents of songwriters Jack Yellen and Milton Ager, bandleader Paul Whiteman and first-timer Bing Crosby as singer.

However, the highlights are undoubtedly Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue and the finale, The Melting Pot of Music. Yet for all this, it was a spectacular flop, as audiences tired of the early sound era's musical boom.
