The Messiah & The Mirror
11 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

'The Messiah On Mott Street' - Edward G. Robinson plays an elderly and ailing bedridden Jewish grandfather whose grandson tries to save his life at the Holiday season by finding the messiah, who comes in the form of a postman(played by Yaphet Kotto), assuming the angel of death doesn't get there first... Moving holiday story can be enjoyed equally by all faiths.

'The Painted Mirror' - Arthur O'Connell plays an antique shop owner who hates his callous new business partner(played by Zsa Zsa Gabor) and plots with a loyal female customer to get rid of her in a strange mirror that leads to another prehistoric world... Amusing tale with grim overtones is at least fun to watch, with a good premise.
