Plot Summary
Al Fuller (Al Jolson), star of a blackface minstrel show traveling the Southern circuit, falls in love with the beautiful Nora Meadows (Lois Moran), daughter of the struggling troupe's owner (Hobart Bosworth). Nora's heart belongs to master of ceremonies Billy West (Lowell Sherman), despite his skirt-chasing ways, but the jealousy of another member of the troupe leads to tragedy. Irving Berlin wrote the songs, as well as the stage play, "Mr. Bones," upon which the film is based.
