HIS WIFE'S LOVER (1931) * with hard-encoded English subtitles *

Sidney M. Goldin, Sheyne Rokhl, Semkoff, Ludwig Satz, Lucy Levine, Isidore Cashier

Eddie Wien is a handsome actor, who decides it's time he settle down with one woman.  His uncle Oscar, however, doesn't have the best opinion of the fairer sex.  He warns Eddie that all women are frivolous and selfish and want only one thing:  a wallet too thick to close.  Eddie decides to prove him wrong and pursues shop girl Golda Blumberg; but not as himself, but rather disguised as a repulsive, old millionaire named Herman Weingarten.  At first, Golda resists Herman, but given her dire financial situation, she eventually gives in to his advances.  Refusing to admit defeat, Eddie decides to play around with her head a bit more and in a second wager, the travesty continues.  Eventually, love triumphs and everyone finds one another (until the inevitable future event, when their lawyers will fall in love, too ... with their money during the divorce proceedings).

DVD-R is in Yiddish with hard-encoded English subtitles.  Approx. 76 mins. + a 9 min. contemporary newsreel.  Scratchy sound.
