The Jazz Singer Trivia
- Though the film is widely considered to be the first talking film, there was originally planned to be no spoken dialogue, only singing. Al Jolson improvised all of the dialogue in the talking scenes on spot, and Harry Warner made the call to leave these scenes in the film.
- Sam Warner, the Warner brother who was nicknamed the "Father of the Talkies" because he insisted that Al Jolson's ad-libbed speech be included in the movie, died on Wednesday, October 5th, 1927, just one day before the film debuted to the remaining cast and crew on Thursday, October 6th, 1927.
- The movie's first spoken dialogue, "Wait a minute, wait a minute. You ain't heard nothing yet" was voted as the #71 movie quote by the American Film Institute (out of 100), and as #57 of "The 100 Greatest Movie Lines" by Premiere in 2007.
- Al Jolson's famous line (as Jack Robin) "You ain't heard nothin' yet." was an ad-lib. The intention was that the film should only have synchronized music, not speech, but Jolson dropped in the line (which he used in his stage act) after the song "Dirty Hands, Dirty Face". The director wisely left it in.
- Myrna Loy is briefly glimpsed as a chorus girl in one scene. She appears around 30:00 with a single line of dialog: "He hasn't a chance with Mary."
- First feature-length movie with audible dialogue.
- Many documentaries and historians state that immediately after the release and success of The Jazz Singer (1927) that all of Hollywood switched to sound. This is not true for several reasons.
