Sunday, May 22 – see schedule below
Speaker Dr. Arnold T. Blumberg
Included with Admission
A Day at the Races and Young Frankenstein: Two films released 37 years apart but united by remarkably similar senses of humor fueled by a uniquely Jewish perspective on mad doctors and mad love. The central characters of both movies blend predictable feelings of persecution with a healthy irreverence for convention and a disregard for stuffy authority. Join another Jewish Doctor named Arnold T. Blumberg as he fills you in on some of the fun behind-the-scenes anecdotes that make the Marx Bros.’ A Day at the Races and Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein two of his all-time favorites in the annals of Jewish movie medicine.
Schedule for the Day:
11:00 am – Screening of Day at the Races
1:00 am – Lecture with Dr. Blumberg
2:00 – Screening of Young Frankenstein
