Flick Pick: Fiddler On The Roof

Fiddler On The Roof
(United Artists, 1971)

Topol and co. in the cinema version of the hit Broadway play, shot beautifully on location in then-Yugoslavia, and well-directed by master storyteller Norman Jewison (who, contrary to assumptions because of his name, is in fact a Presbyterian from Canada), who also has the rare distinction of being nominated for Oscars for both directing and/or producing some 7 times, and receiving not a one. No less than 4 of his works are or will be on this list by the time it concludes.
