Lewis- Rushefsky Yiddish Film Series - Tevya
One of Tevye's daughters falls in love with a gentile. When he learns of her marriage, he pronounces her 'dead.' Her intermarriage is depicted as not only a personal tragedy for Tevye but also a tragedy for all Jewish people. A wonderful Yiddish film with subtitles. This film was much later turned into the musical, Fiddler On the Roof.
