5. Jazz Singer – Neil Diamond’s Biggest Regret

Our writer Tom said he’d quit if this scene wasn’t on the list. So, I obliged. It’s hard to believe that Neil Diamond’s career didn’t suffer after this, but maybe The Jazz Singer‘s critical response softened the blow. The film was a critical flop, and Diamond actually saw a number of album sales due to the success of the film’s soundtrack. Unfortunately, if you were ever to have seen him live, he doesn’t use blackface at any point during his show.
