This documentary explores the unique role of Jewish composers and lyricists in the creation of the modern American musical and many of the songs that fill “The American Songbook,” – songs our nation took to war, sang to their children and whistled while waiting for the bus. The film showcases the work of Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, George and Ira Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II and many others.
