Yidl Mitn Fidl (1936)


Yidl Mitn Fidl (1936) stars Molly Picon [1898–1992; born Małka Opiekun in New York City], Max Bozyk and Leon Liebgold. It is directed by Joseph Green and Jan Nowina-Przybylski. Wikipedia writes: “The film was shot on location in Kazimierz DolnyPoland, with local inhabitants as extras.[1][2] Based on a novella by Konrad Tom, the screenplay was written by Green. Its score was composed by Abraham Ellstein, and the lyrics to the songs were written by Itzik MangerJakob Jonilowicz was the photo director of the film.” Although it is a film with a stylized version of life in prewar Poland, it is a good film that does provide some insight into what life was like for many Jews in Poland before the Holocaust.
