Did You Know?
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.
The success of his award winning film Sallah
(1964) partly led to him playing Tevye in the hit London stage production of 'Fiddler on the Roof' in London in 1967. This resulted in him being named 'Man of the Year' in London, Best Foreign Actor by the International Variety Poll of London Critics. He topped the single record charts with his single of 'If I Was a Rich Man' from the show.
