Anyone who ever plays Tevye should be thankful to Zero Mostel
. He gave us all room and I know I wouldn't have done the movie without the advantage of a year's rehearsal on stage.
In the late 1980s he toured the US in a stage revival of "Fiddler on the Roof." Unlike when he made the movie in 1971, he was Tevye's age by this time. The part of wife Golde was played by Rosalind Harris
