Jolson in BomboThis photo from a publicity flyer for Bombo shows Jolson as Gus, eying two ladies of the ensemble. As Jolson's fame grew, he insisted that his supporting casts be as unremarkable as possible. He could not bear the thought of any competion.

There are a number of good books on Jolson and his era, and new sites appear in the web every year. Here are some of the best sources of info that I am aware of.
