  1. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film The King of Jazz

    days of Technicolor extravaganzas.

  2. MarcH's rating of the film The King of Jazz

    The "Rhapsody in Blue" number (in two-color Technicolor) is something to see...part Ziegfeld, part Fantasia, part Busby Berkeley. Not to mention the thrill of hearing Paul Whiteman's orchestra perform the definitive version of the song. This is one of the few revue-style films of the early sound period that doesn't require liberal use of the fast-forward button.
