sequel JOLSON SINGS AGAIN (1949). During the McCarthy era, he admitted to membership in the Communist Party so Columbia dropped him as a contract player. Hunter, who played leads in a number of low budget musicals during a two year period in the 1940s, became a successful producer in the early
1950s, with such films to his credit as IMITATION OF LIFE (1959) and AIRPORT (1970). Songs include: "Who Said Dreams Can't Come True" (Benny Davis, Al Jolson, Harry Akst), "I've Waited a Lifetime" (Edward Brandt), "I Can't Remember When" (Robert Schermann, Jack Krakeur), "What the Sergeant Said"
(Jackie Camp), "My Other Love" (Bob Wright, Chet Forrest), "Mom" (Saul Chaplin), and "American Prayer" (Lawrence Stock, Vincent Rose, Al Stillman).
