George Roland Writers: Abraham Armband (adaptation), M. Kenig (adaptation), 2 more credits ยป Stars: Rose Greenfield, Lazar Freed, Anne Loeb

Produced by Joseph Seiden over a two-day period with a miniscule budget in a loft overlooking New York City, the film tells the story of a middle-class matron who shoots the man, who compromises her.  The long-suffering mother shooting a would-be suitor employs many archtypes of the Yiddish theatre, from the conflict between the sacrificing mother and the homewrecking schemer, to the reunion of parent and child at a celebratory wedding.

DVD-R is in Yiddish with hard-encoded English subtitles.  Approx. 71 mins. + a 13 min. newsreel.  See film sample for audio and video quality.
