Al Jolson sings in the 1st-ever Talkie “The Jazz Singer”

It was Warner Bros that took the 1st leap into the all-talking movie with the Jazz Singer in 1927. Though there are instances of sound being used earlier this film is the 1st feature-length motion-pic with synchronized dialogues. Directed by Alan Crosland, it starred Al Jolson performing the 6 songs in the Movie. And as the saying goes the rest is history.
