Eddie Cantor was a huge star of Vaudeville, Broadway, Old Time Radio, silent movies, and talkies. He was awarded an honorary Academy Award in 1956 for distinguished service to the film industry, in a long career that spanned three decades and such memorable films as Special Delivery, Kid Boots, Whoopee!, and Roman Scandals.

One of his earliest paying jobs was as a singing waiter with a Jimmy Durante accompanying him on piano. Florenz Ziegfeld hired him to appear at his rooftop post-show, Midnight Frolic, in 1917. A year later, Cantor made his Broadway debut in the Ziegfeld Follies.
