ethnic musical comedy
18 February 2007 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

I was well aware of the thriving Yiddish film industry in the United States,but before i saw this film i was totally unaware that ethnic films such as this had been made in the UK.It features Jack "Kid"Berg in his only featured role in a version o0f Brewsters Millions.He was the World Welterweight champion in 1930-31 and therefore not unnaturally the film manages to incorporate a boxing match into the film.What rather intrigues me is whether this film was made mainly to be shown in the East End,his nickname being the "Whitechapel Whirlwind" or whether this was for wider circulation.This film is obviously a bit dated but it is of some historic interest.
