MOVIE: "THE FRISCO KID"
With our Music Director Ezra Donner away for this Shabbat, we will screen the 1979 film "The Frisco Kid," a great Jewish comedy starring the late Gene Wilder and Harrison Ford.
Rabbi Avram Belinsky (Gene Wilder) lands in Philadelphia intending to travel to San Francisco, where he plans on starting a synagogue. Quickly relieved of his belongings by a group of con artists, Avram optimistically sets out alone on foot toward the Wild West. He gets into one scrape after another until he is rescued, in a way, by a compassionate horseman named Tommy Lillard (Harrison Ford). Unfortunately, Tommy may not be quite as heroic as he seems, and it is still a long way to California.
