Where did Robinson Crusoe Go with Friday on Saturday Night?


A throwback to extravaganzas of the 1880s this show concerned a millionaire who dreams of being Robinson Crusoe.


Reviews I don't mind going on record saying that he (Jolson) is one of the few instinctively funny men on the stage. Everything he touches turns to fun. To watch him is to marvel at his humourous vitality. He is the old-time minstrel man turned to modern account. With a song, a word, or even a suggestion he calls forth spontaneous laughter. And here you have the definition of a born comedian. (Charles Darnton, New York Evening World)
