Eddie Cantor Story, The
This is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.
This merry musical biography of "Banjo Eyes" will gladden the hearts of Cantor and musical fans alike. It's got fabulous songs, assured direction by Alfred E. Green (The Jolson Story) and elaborate numbers typical of the Ziegfeld stage. Keefe Brasselle plays the energetic kid from the East Side in this decades-spanning saga of the showman's rise from singing waiter to vaudeville sensation and Ziegfeld Follies headliner, from pioneering radio days to his lifelong devotion to humanitarian causes.
Cantor himself sings on the soundtrack, performing "Makin' Whoopee," "If You Knew Susie," "Margie, Ida, Ma," "He's Making Eyes at Me" and other signature tunes. He and wife Ida make a charming cameo appearance in this musical that will surely touch hearts and lift spirits all over.
