Did You Know?


Jolsen makes a comment about needing a 'schtick' for the talkies, like "smoking a cigar, or dressing like a tramp". This is making reference to early movie stars W.C. Fields (cigar smoker) and Charlie Chaplin (AKA The Little Tramp). See more »


At the end of the episode, the Jewish woman is praying to begin the Sabbath meal. When she covers her face, her wedding ring is visible on her left ring finger. She should be wearing it on her right, or even her right index or middle finger. See more »

Light and Quirky
20 April 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

A quirky outing for Murdoch Mysteries, a mix of superficial exploration of the Jewish culture and vaudeville. Our comedy relief comes from two fronts this episode with John Brackenreid and Llewelyn Watts each having the comedy spotlight in intersecting story arcs. It would be easy to take offense at the elementary lessons in Judaism, but the heart of this episode has all the strengths of the better Murdoch Mysteries (models, lists, pursuing the wrong suspect before figuring it all out, etc.) and the gentle comedy beween the characters that keeps fans tuning in week after week. An episode to sit back and enjoy.
