Three sweet adaptations from Classic Yiddish literature
NJtoTX from Austin, TX
19 July 2003
A sweet collection of three stories adapted from Yiddish literature. A
of Chelm deals with a bookseller who is sent by his wife to buy a goat in
town of fools.
Bontshe Shveig is the moving story of a poor, modest man (Jack Gilford)
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.
