Hallelujah, I'm a Bum


Hallelujah, I'm a Bum is a 1933 American pre-Code musical comedy film directed by Lewis Milestone and set in the Great Depression.

The film stars Al Jolson as Bumper, a popular New York tramp, and both romanticizes and satirizes the hobo lifestyle into which many people were forced by the economic conditions of the time. It is noted for its heavy leftist overtones and freewheeling style. Among the production's supporting cast are Frank Morgan, silent comedian Harry Langdon and Chester Conklin of the Keystone Kops. Morgan, who portrays the Wizard in the 1939 version of The Wizard of Oz, foreshadows a famous line in that film when he says to Al Jolson, "There's no place like home, there's no place like home". Jolson, known for his history of supporting black entertainment, hired black vaudevillian Edgar Connor to play his buddy.
