There two clips here: one of Al Jolson doing a demo for his 1946 bio-pic "The Al Jolson Story" and the second is Larry Parks who played Al Jolson in the movie doing the same song. Parks received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor, and the film became one of the highest-grossing films of 1946.

Yet another hit by the Hollies. Perhaps their greatest. A love song – I know because I lived it and it was great!
