A discussion on the history of Jews in and on film! How the film industry began and was shaped by Jewish European Immigrants and made what it is today. The presentation will also stress the history and representation of the Jewish man/woman and culture and of ethnicity on film and the assimilation of the Jewish immigrants and their families into American gentile society. The issue of identity and what it means and how it changes will be examined as well as how, ironically, European immigrants developed the "American Dream"
