Three sweet adaptations from Classic Yiddish literature
19 July 2003 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

A sweet collection of three stories adapted from Yiddish literature. A Tale of Chelm deals with a bookseller who is sent by his wife to buy a goat in a town of fools.

Bontshe Shveig is the moving story of a poor, modest man (Jack Gilford) who has led an exemplary life. He dies and goes to heaven and gets to name his reward. This story has stayed with me.

The High School portrays the efforts of a couple to get their son into a secular high school.
