What a wonderful world
on April 3, 2000
During the Golden Age Of Television, there were many wonderful dramas that were not afraid to showcase ethnicity. Dramas such as "The Tenth Man", and"The World Of Shalom Aleichem" showed universal truths. Here you can see a preview of Zero Mostel in his environment, long before his emmy winning "Fiddler On The Roof." Here, Jack Gilford performs his wonderful pantomine soon to be used for Cracker Jack commercials. The three stories show the depth of Aleichem's humor; the wise foolishness of Chelm; the sarcastic tale of the meek inheriting the earth, and the poignant tale of quotas in education which existed in the 1950's and 1960's. Besides, I had a chance in high school to play "Bontche Schweig", and seeing the master at work is a dream come true.
Don't miss out on this one.
