Summary "Jan Peerce was a great singer, universally acclained as one of the outstanding artists of his time, a role model of the American Dream. Beginning with Peerce's roots on the Lower East Side of New York, this film takes us uptown and around the world with him. We view his life through music performance, through interviews with famed concert violinist (and hose) Isaac Stern, and throgh compelling footage, some of which has never been publicly shown before."--Container.
