King Of Jazz (1930)

King of Jazz is a 1930 motion picture starring Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra. The film's title was taken from Whiteman's controversial, self-conferred appellation. (This might seem controversial these days, but in the 1920s, it was Whiteman who signed and featured great white jazz musicians including Venuti, Lang, Dorsey, Beiderbecke, Trumbauer and others.) The film was shot entirely in the early two-color Technicolor process and was produced by Carl Laemmle for Universal Pictures. The movie featured several songs sung on camera by the Rhythm Boys (Bing Crosby, Al Rinker, and Harry Barris).....
