Midwest Premiere Of "King Of Jazz" says
Newly restored to its original two-strip Technicolor glory, this Universal Pictures extravaganza features a series of musical numbers by Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra, including a performance of Rhapsody in Blue, which Whiteman commissioned from George Gershwin. (Whiteman, a hugely popular bandleader of the 1920s, was dubbed “the King of Jazz” by the white media of his day.) This classic revue film also contains assorted comedy sketches, the first Technicolor animation, Bing Crosby as one third of the Rhythm Boys trio, and a novelty act in which Stars and Stripes Forever is played on a bicycle pump. Cleveland revival premiere. DCP. 100 min.
