This memorable adaptation of Sholem Aleichem´s play centers on Tevye, the dairyman, and his daughter Khave, who falls in love with Fedye, the Gentile son of a Ukrainian peasant. Her courtship and marriage pit Tevye´s deep-seated faith and loyalty to tradition. Made from a completely restored print. ´´With all due respect for Zero Mostel and Topol in Fiddler on the Roof, it was Maurice Schwartz, the great Yiddish actor/director, who first showed Tevye the Dairyman in his full light as a mensch for all seasons. A rare opportunity to see Schwartz in what may have been his most magnificent role´´ (Judy Stone, San Francisco Chronicle). From the National Center for Jewish Film. Yiddish with new English subtitles.
