Last night, of course, House was pre-empted by the Indians-Red Sox game (go Tribe!).  Mary was unwilling to sit through it and asked me (the keeper of the remote since my stroke) to find something else.

It so happens that I caught the last half hour of the original The Jazz Singer, with Al Jolson, the first "talkie" (though it was still mostly a silent). 

Wow.  I've seen it before, but I guess I was seeing it through different eyes.  What a story.

I guess Turner Classic Movies was playing it in honor of the 80th anniversary box set that came out yesterday.  I know what I want for Christmas...
