Mammy! What a Blunder!
Saw the ad for the Chicago International Film Festival in the Reader [October 11], and while I agree the Lewis Milestone-Al Jolson movie is a classic, the picture you published is not from Hallelujah, I'm a Bum! but from Jolson's 1936 film The Singing Kid.

You're right, we were all wet. We got a mislabeled photo from the film festival. Thanks for the correction.
