Who was the best Jazz Singer?

The original Al Jolson

Danny Thomas in the 1953 movie. The top clip shows the movies' first scene. (Don't you just love a high reform service?) I can't find the Kol nidre online,but you can hear it in the second clip.


 Jerry Lewis from the version of the Jazz Singer that aired as a 1959 TV movie Kol Nidre starts @51:00.
 He sings it in black face!


 Neil Diamond in the 1980 movie. Search for more information about ###
