A TRIBUTE TO NORMAN JEWISON
Norman Jewison In Person!
FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
Introduction by director Norman Jewison.
FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
1971, Park Circus/MGM, 181 min, USA, Dir: Norman Jewison

Coming at the end of the great era of Hollywood musicals, director Norman Jewison’s wonderful, elegiac FIDDLER ON THE ROOF added a note of somber realism to the genre, contributing such soul-inspiring numbers as "Tradition," “Sunrise, Sunset" and "L’chaim (To Life)." Topol stars as the beleaguered yet optimistic Russian milkman Tevye, trying to hold his Jewish family together in the face of troubling changes in early 20th-century Russia. Production designer Robert Boyle (THE BIRDS, CAPE FEAR) conjures up a marvelous, earth-toned vision of life in the shtetls. Based on Joseph Stein’s play, with music and lyrics by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick. Academy Award winner for Cinematography (Oswald Morris) and Score (John Williams).
