THE UNFORTUNATE BRIDE (1932) * with hard-encoded English subtitles *

Henry Lynn Writer: Zalmen Libin (play) Stars: Michael Rosenberg

This film within a film involves a grandfather telling his grandchildren a cautionary tale about a Jewish dissident-writer, who leaves his wife in Russia and heads for America to learn English and begin a new life as a journalist.  When he learns from a friend that his wife back in Russia has died, he takes up with the daughter of a cantor.  It isn't long before he discovers the "value" system among American Jews, when the woman's parents reject him, because he's poor.  The story gets a bit more complicated, however, when Wife No. 1 shows up and the cantor's daughter defies her parents by taking control of her own decisions.

DVD-R is silent with hard-encoded Yiddish and English subtitles.  Approx. 65 mins. + a 8 min. newsreel.
