"The Jazz Singer" is a 1959 adaption of the play of the same name starring Jerry Lewis. It was produced as an episode of the television series, "Startime" and was broadcast on October 13, 1959.


Cantor Rabinowitz (Eduard Franz is upset that his son Joey (Jerry Lewis) has left home to pursue a career as a singer/comedian after showing no interest in carrying on the family's tradition of being Cantors in the synagogue. After five generations of doing so, it appears that Joey is more interested in making jokes and singing jazz music.

After a few years on his own, Joey, who know calling himself Joey Robbins, gets an opportunity to perform on the television show with Ginny Gibbons (Anna Maria Alberghetti). Unfortunately his father falls ill during his rehearsal performance and he runs to his side, putting show business aside for his family obligations.


"The Jazz Singer" was produced as a television episode of the short-lived TV series, "Startime". It has never been rebroadcast or distributed on any home format.
