Audiences at the October 6, 1927, premiere of the first film with spoken dialogue were electrified by what they could now see and hear when star Al Jolson (born Asa Yoelson, 1886-1950), in the film's best-remembered line, proclaimed: "Wait a minute, you ain't heard nothing yet!" To watch this historical movie from the man who was known as The World’s Greatest Entertainer, today is to relive that exciting event. In our edition we have included as bonus tracks the two first movie performances by Al Jolson: two songs recorded in September 6, 1926, at New York’s Manhattan Opera House for a one-reel film entittled A Plantation Act.
