year's end are two "sleep-
ers," simple pictures made
intelligently for a limited
budget, both filled with
warmth and sincerity. The
two films are the work of
Jewish craftsmen.
"Reuben, Reuben" was
written by veteran Julius J.
Epstein who in the 1940s,
with his late twin brother
Philip, won an Academy
Award for "Casablanca."
Epstein wrote the touching
screen adaptation of "Re-
uben, Reuben" from the
novel by Peter De Vries.
While Epstein is past 70,
producer Walter Shenson
and director Robert Ellis
Miller are middle-aged; the
latter is an alumnus from
the Yiddish stage in New
York.
On the other hand, those
behind the scene of "Heart
Like a Wheel" are in their
thirties. Jonathan Kaplan,
the Paris-born director, is
the son of film composer Sol
Kaplan. He met the screen

writer of the epic, Ken
Friedman, when both
attended New York Univer-
sity film school. It is their
fourth collaboration as a
creative team. Also at work
on the film, dealing in a
novel way with automobile
races, is composer Leonard
Rosenthal supplying the
score.
"Reuben, Reuben" stars
Scottish actor Tom Conti
whom we had seen on the
television screen in "The
Wall," from the novel by
John Hersey. "Heart Like a
Wheel" is the real-life story
of racing champion Shirley
Muldowney, portrayed by
look-alike Bonnie Bedelia.
While the hero of "Reuben,
Reuben" is a charming
scoundrel who has the seed
of self-destruction within
him, Bedelia depicts a de-
termined young woman
who wrestled with the de-
mands of her dreams, not
success but achievement.

Commentaries

NEW YORK — The
commentaries to the
Jerusalem Talmud by
Rabbi Isaac Krasilschikov
will be edited as a result of a
grant from the National

Endowment for the
Humanities to the Al Tidom
Association of New York.
Rabbi Krasilschikov was
one of the last great tal-
mudic scholars in Russia.
He died in 1965.
Without a Jewish library
and under constant fear of
discovery and reprisal,
Rabbi Krasilschikov la-
bored in Moscow for 20
years to produce his com-
mentary to the Jerusalem
Talmud. On his deathbed,
he asked Rabbi Harry
Bronstein of the Al Tidom
Association to rescue the
manuscripts.
After 13 years of effort,
the manuscripts were re-
moved from Russia.
