George Jessel and his Russian Art Choir

This forum is nearly identical to the previous forum. The difference? Discussions about comedy from the SOUND era.

Leaving us once again to ask the question we ask after seeing Jessel in ANYTHING:

"What the hell is he doing there?".

I like the observation that Scott Berg made, in THE SPEED OF SOUND, that seeing Jessel answers the question "What would have happened if Jessel made THE JAZZ SINGER? Warners would have gone bankrupt, and talkies wouldn't catch on for another ten years." (I'm paraphrasing).
