Jolson No. 1 entertainer LONDONf CP) As a person re was no good, said comedian George Jessel, "but he was the greatest entertainer I've ever ten." No prizes for guessing the ubjeel of back-handed ribute Al Jolson, the Rus- superstar who be- trcrJe American show business or nearly 50 years and whose wn egotistic claim to be the TOrld's greatest entertainer as never challenged by his ri- als, whatever they thought of him as a person. Jessel had perhaps a specia ause for bitterness, having los ul to Jolson in 1927 for the tarring role in the world's firs Iking picture, The Jazz Sing r, after successfully creating t.e part on stage.

SPARKED SELL-OUT Publication of the biography, written by British journalist Mi- chael Freedland, sparked a sell-out Jolson season at Lon- don's National film theatre. Britain, it turns out, is the centre of an International Al Jolson Society, whose members gather periodically from coun- tries as far apart as Canada and New Zealand to play rec- jords of the master's voice and re-run his faded films of the 1930s. Freedland's book, entitled Al Jokon and published here by W. H. Allen, is full of colorful memories of the cantor's son. Asa Yoelson, or less in the fashion portrayed in his biographical films ran away from home and synagogue to become undisputed king of Broadway and first voice of the movies. Written off as a has-been by the time of (lie Second World War, Jolson became the first U.S. entertainer to tour the bat- Llefronis and made a stunning posl-war comeback in Uie age of the bobby soxers. At his death after a gruelling trip singing to U.S. troops In Korea, Hie lights of Broadway were Lumed off and traffic halted in Times Square. TOOK COMMAND Barely five-foot-six and all igo, he would take command of a show, sometimes dismiss-, ing the entire cast and carry- ing on by himself until 3 a.m. while the audience roared for more songs like California Here I come, April Showers and Swanee. Among his wives was dancer Ruby Keeler, born in Dart- mouth, N.S, with whom he starred in a 1935 movie called Go Into Your Dance, hut whose own success galled his pride. Movies never managed to convey the full force of his elec- tric personality. It was, says Freedland, "like trying to trap the Pacific Ocean in a bottle." Freedland sums up Jolson as "the great Jewish entertainer."
