    It seems that even in 1934 doing blackface routines were so out of the main stream that they wouldn't include them in trailer to the movie.  Notice that the sequence 'Going to heaven on a Mule"', an idea by Al Jolson, was referred to but not shown. I wonder why Jolson persisted on doing black face so long?
