I saw this film once in 1973, the first time it was aired on TV, I presume. I found it fascinating and atmospheric, suspenseful and frankly terrifying. Right now, I can't seem to find it on DVD or in any form. I'd love to see it again and hope the powers that be are going to issue it on DVD soon so that it can be appreciated by a new generation. ---- It has a startling premise and I don't want to ruin anyone's viewing pleasure by telling too much. But it presents a Jewish Rabbi, as I recall, who is being forced out of his home in New York, and who uses his magical abilities to take revenge on the young man who is helping to force him out. There is a twist near the end, but the final scene is perfectly horrifying. I felt the film well captured the potentially Gothic atmosphere of Manhattan with its dim old tenements and small ancient grave yards. Highly recommended. The acting was excellent. The writing was excellent. What more can I say except I'm eager to see this again.
