Broadway Musicals DVD
BM01 Broadway Musicals DVD - Topol (Actor), Norma Crane (Actor), Norman Jewison (Director) - Fiddler on the Roof Special Edition 1971 - Broadway Musicals DVD - The extra features (contained on side 2 of the disc) on Fiddler on the Roof are definitely worthy of this incredible musical. The commentary by Norman Jewison and Chaim Topol (billed here as Topol) is informative and brings a new depth to the film (although obviously recorded separately, and thus intermittently redundant). The documentary Norman Jewison, Filmmaker delves somewhat into the career of Jewison, but the focus is on following the production of Fiddler and the many difficulties encountered. Be prepared for a sharp contrast when you watch Jewison's modern-day recollections; these were filmed almost 30 years later. Other highlights on this disc are the full color version of Tevye's Dream (which can be viewed in side-by-side comparison with the one in the film); Jewison reading the stories of Sholom Aleichem over beautifully drawn pictures; historical context for the film (which might be useful to new viewers to watch first); a song deleted from the film (shown over movie stills); and much more. An outstanding accomplishment in every category (Boxoffice), this lavishly produced and critically acclaimed screen adaptation of the international stage sensation tells the life-affirming story of Tevye (Topol), a poor milkman whose love, pride and faith help him face the oppression of turn-of-the century czarist Russia. Nominated-- for eight Academy Awards?(r), including Best Picture and Best Director, and featuring such classic songs as If I Were A Rich Man, Matchmaker and Sunrise, Sunset, Fiddler on the Roof is a universal story of hope, love and acceptancea stunning, joyful and jubilant (New York Daily News) musical masterpiece. A marvel, this film has never looked or sounded better for home viewing - a remixed Dolby 5.1 soundtrack and crystal-clear picture on a double-layer disc make this a contribution to your film library you'll not regret. Jewison and Topol's commmentary give you some ideas behind the making of the film, what the director was trying to achieve, and how Topol moved his character from stage to screen. Director's full use of the 70mm aspect ratio demands the anamorphic widescreen format used in this printing. The music in this movie is absolutely beautiful. You'll tap your feet to If I Were a Rich Man, and Miracle of Miracles. You'll find tears in your eyes during Sunrise, Sunset, and Far From the Home I Love. You'll laugh at Yente and during the dance at the bar. This is a movie that belongs in everyone's movie collection. It is a story that will last forever.
