White Mountain Jewish Film Festival - The Frisco Kid

6:00PM - 9:00PM  

Colonial Theatre, Bethlehem

The Frisco Kid -- a 1979 American Western comedy film directed by Robert Aldrich, starring Gene Wilder as Avram Belinski, a Polish rabbi who is traveling to San Francisco, and Harrison Ford as a bank robber who befriends him. Jordan Hiller deems it one of 25 “Essential Jewish Movies,” writing that The Frisco Kid is, “…all pratfalls and tuchus jokes aside, the quintessential 'Torah' movie."
Steve Soreff, who serves as President of Etz Hayim Synagogue and on the board of directors of the JFNH, will be our guest speaker.
