Directed by Leon Jeannot
A restored Yiddish classic. A
musical comedy portraying the relentless efforts of two small-town Jews to
escape their misery and achieve fame and fortune. In the face of setbacks,
community quarrels and even insanity, they refuse to give in to despair.
With violent anti-Semitism intensifying in Poland and Nazism looming on the
horizon, their satirical monologues provided Jewish audiences with a rare
opportunity to escape through laughter. From the National Center for Jewish
Film. Yiddish with English subtitles. 62 minutes.
