His Wife's Lover
August 21, 2011
Billed as the “first Jewish musical comedy talking picture,” His Wife’s Lover stars the popular Yiddish theater comedian Ludwig Satz in his only film performance, which includes an unforgettable tour de force as a dirty old man. Written by female screenwriter Sheyne Rokhl Simkoff, about whom little is known, the film explores issues of role reversal and love triangles. (80 minutes, Yiddish with new English subtitles).
