1937. USA. Directed by Edgar G. Ulmer, Jacob Ben-Ami. With Michael Gorrin, Helen Beverly, Isidore Cashier, Anna Appel, Herschel Bernardi. In Ulmer’s eclectic Reinhardt/Murnau–trained career, a Yiddish feature costing $8,000 was not an anomaly. The picaresque film, part of the Golden Age of Yiddish Cinema, owes something to Ulmer’s work on the naturalistic People on Sunday. In Yiddish; English subtitles. 104 min.
