On this day in 1927, "The Jazz Singer" opened in New York starring
Al Jolson. The film was based on the short story "The Day of
Atonement" by Sampson Raphaelson. As the first feature-length
motion picture with not only a synchronized recorded music score,
but also lip-synchronous singing and speech in several isolated sequences, its release heralded the commercial ascendance of
sound films and ended the silent film era.
