Arthur Cohn, the Swiss-
based three-time Academy
Award winner, notably for
"The Garden of the Finzi-
Continis," has optioned a
play by Baruch Lumet
(father of film director Sid-
ney Lumet), for a $1 million
Broadway production as a
musical in the "Fiddler on
the Roof" vein. Lumet's
classic comedy dealing with
the shtetl in the pale of set-
tlement at the -turn of the
century is entitled "Once
Upon .a Tailor" and had a
run of almost two years in
Los Angeles in the late
1950s.

Molly Picon, the grand

lady of the Yiddish stage
and screen, was honored
by the Jewish National
Fund at a banquet held in
Beverly Hills with West-
ern director Fred Kahan
making the presentation.
I remember that in the
frightfully depressive
days of the late 1930s,
Molly's whimsical,
Polish-made film, "Yid-
die mit dem Fiddle,"
cheered us up in Nazi
Germany. It was the last
picture to be seen by the
Jewish community there.

Erwin Leiser, the Swiss
author and documentary
film maker, was in town for
one day to present- at the
University of Southern
California his feature-
length picture, "Deutsch-
land Erwache" (Wake Up
Germany), a compilation,of
excerpts from the cinema of
Nazi Germany.

in "Benji's Very Own

an interview with this col-
umnist a few years ago,
Moody, who is an Orthodox
Jew, defended his playing
