But let's not miss the fact that "King of Jazz," especially when compared to the other musical revues of the day, was and still is an excellent work. The sets and the direction were superb, the blackout comedy sketches are quick and punchy, Whiteman is hugely fun on camera and the color appears to be spectacular.
Unfortunately, I believe there are no complete 35mm prints extant. I wonder if Universal has some negative material on KOJ? A restoration would be most welcome.
Also, let's not forget the Rhythm Boys, Willie Hall, and the familiar sound of the Whiteman Orchestra with all of the easily recognizeable Grofe and challis touches -- all terrific!
