By far the most famous and successful movie in which actor Paul Freeman
has appeared in his career is Raiders of the Lost Ark
(1981), in which he plays a French archaeologist who collaborates with the Nazis. In this film, he plays an Orthodox rabbi who is imprisoned in a concentration camp by the Nazis. See more

You have a very vivid imagination, and it is causing you much needless pain.
I wish that was true.
