A Yiddish classic? Or just one that has that feel.
25 February 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I like these old movies based on Yiddish stories or at least with a Yiddish feel to them. This was actually based on a Gogol story and he is Ukrainian / Russian not Jewish but this story certainly has that ambiance. In any event these stories are always so full of character (and characters.) This film reminds me somewhat (not the least because it stars David Kossoff ) of the film "A kid for two farthings" But here is the real reason for this post. Although this film was made in the mid 1950s I swear when I watched it that I saw a very young and skinny Sean Connery in a walk on walk off role. But he is uncredited so I cannot confirm it and the film was made a good 6 years before his first big international film - Dr No. Be interesting to have this confirmed or otherwise! Another interesting aside is that this film won an Oscar.
