The Jazz Singer

The Jazz Singer is a 1980 American drama film and a remake of the 1927 classic The Jazz Singer, released by EMI Films. It starred Neil Diamond, Laurence Olivier and Lucie Arnaz and was co-directed by Richard Fleischer and Sidney J. Furie.

It resulted in three hit songs, "America", "Love on the Rocks" and "Hello Again". ... more on Wikipedia
