*Introduced by Yiddish translator and performer Caraid O'Brien.

(1940, Joseph Seiden) Quintessential “shund” – lowbrow Second-Avenue entertainment – this one’s got it all: Filial sacrifice! Suffering parents! A D.A. singing in Yiddish! Wild coincidences! Amnesia! And comic relief from The Great Yetta Zwerling! What, that’s not enough? DCP restoration. Approx. 84 min.
