Fiddler On The Roof: Special Edition

Submitted by Rob Stover

On MGM Home Entertainment’s Special Edition release of the musical movie “Fiddler On The Roof, ” an interesting hidden feature can be found.

Insert the side of the DVD that contains the supplemental materials – golden side up.

When the main menu for this disc appears on the screen, highlight the entry “The Stories of Sholom Aleichem” and then press the “Right” arrow key on your remote control. This will highlight a silhouette of the fiddler on the screen. Press “Enter” now and you will be treated to a short clip of director Norman Jewison telling a witty story of a beggar and a rich merchant. This tale can be found in the original stage play as a short dialogue between the beggar Reb Nahum and the butcher Lazar Wolf.
