Nu - so you wanna put a smile on your punim?
27 December 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is a cute Yiddish film which everyone can follow that takes place in New York in the forties.

Our rich handsome bachelor Nat Silver who can't seem to go through with a wedding for himself decides to try to make a go of it for others by becoming a professional shadchen. His valet, (former pants presser), Morris is a comic addition to the already stereotypical cast.

Our bachelor, Nat Silver changes his name to Nat Gold and takes an office in the Bronx Courthouse Building on the Concourse (great footage at 158th Street).

See what transpires - you'll get a kick out of it. Especially his title "human relishes". After all, Nat is "a nice man"
