  • THE JAZZ SINGER was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1996. Film debut for Al Jolson. Nugent Slaughter won an Academy Award for Engineering Effects, and Warner Brothers received a special award for producing this, the first talking picture. Though there were one or two sound pictures prior to THE JAZZ SINGER, this film effectively ended the era of silent movies. It did not have talking throughout, only a few musical and conversational sequences. But audiences loved it, and soon all the studios were rushing to convert to sound.
