    The Singing Fool (Warner Brothers 1928) Insert (14" x 36") This poster from the fourth Al Jolson film -- and his first film after the landmark the jazz singer (1927) -- is, quite simply, one of the best Jolson images. The singing fool was a tour de force for Jolson who sang some of his best songs in the film. The most famous was "Sonny Boy" and on this poster Jolson is seen delivering "Sonny Boy" in the film's finale. Onstage, arms outstretched, in the theatrical blackface which became such an integral part of Jolson's stage persona, emerges the icon of The Entertainer. Fine, Paper Backed.
