It's a bit of a con

You have to read between the lines of all the other reviews - I didn't. There's only 2 minutes of 'dialogue' in the UK 2 disc version - not really a 'talkie' but not the silent version either. But if you're a Jolson fan, like my Mom, then the songs are good as they are synchronised sound and an interesting piece of history. You get used to the caption cards.
The Vitaphone documentary is quite interesting but lacks the extra features of the US 3-disc version. What did I expect from a '1927' dvd? Probably a George Lucas redubbed version, but no jabba this time!
