  • Tevye

    1939. USA. Directed by Maurice Schwartz. From Tevye der Milkhiker by Sholom Aleichem. With Schwartz. In production just as German tanks rolled into Poland, this bittersweet Yiddish fable is no Fiddler on the Roof. Projecting the lessons of the past into an uncertain present, Schwartz's adaptation of Aleichem's story offered little comfort for audiences of the time.
