The King of Jazz

Jazz? Whiteman may not have been the hottest swinger in town, but this is still hugely enjoyable, partly because of the marvellous two-strip Technicolor, partly because it dispenses with story altogether to focus on a lavishly designed musical revue. Catch Joe Venuti on fiddle, and Whiteman and his boys pounding out Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue'.
