The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County presents the final film of its Second Yiddish Film Festival on Sunday, March 10, 2019 at 2 PM. Admission is $10 per film, or $25 for all three films.
The final film on Sunday, March 10, 2019 2 PM is His Wife's Lover (Zayn Vaybs Lubovnik) USA, 1931, 80 minutes. Yiddish with new English subtitles. Billed as the "first Jewish musical comedy talking picture," His Wife’s Lover stars the popular Yiddish theater comedian Ludwig Satz in one of his only surviving film performances. When handsome actor Eddie Wien decides to marry, his uncle Oscar Stein warns that all women are frivolous and selfish, only on the lookout for a fat pocketbook. To prove him wrong, Eddie woos shop girl Golde Blumberg while disguised as a repulsive old millionaire “Herman Weingarten.”
