Edgar G. Ulmer directed this adaptation by Mendele Mokher Seforim, the grandfather of "19th century modern Yiddish literature," about a weak man's obsession for a blind woman. The film is considered a "penetrating look at shtetl life," and Mendele's "Eastern European Jewish world." With David Opatoshu, Helen Beverly and Isidore Cashier. "Beverly and Opatoshu are perhaps the most beautiful couple in the history of Yiddish cinema" (J. Hoberman, author of Bridge of Light). Yiddish with English subtitles.
