1937. USA. Directed by Edgar G. Ulmer. From the play by Peretz Hirschbein. With Michael Goldstein, Helen Beverley. Rejecting the already familiar immigrant saga, this groundbreaking Yiddish pastoral turns instead to the lost world of the Eastern European shtetl (stunningly recreated in New Jersey by Edgar G. Ulmer's newsreel crews). Print courtesy of The National Center for Jewish Film, Brandeis University. 105 min.
