Just how do you escape an angry mob at sundown on Shabbat? This year our Film Festival snuck in a charming sneak peek to get you ready for our 2017 Film Fest, and what better to wet your whistle than one of the most famous Jewish-centric films, The Frisco Kid. Starring the lovable Gene Wilder and a young and dashing Harrison Ford, The Frisco Kid is a side-splitting western that shows how a Polish Rabbi absolutely COULD survive in the wild wild west. Come out in your best western dress as we pay tribute to the late comedy legend, Gene Wilder.

Editor and Publisher Marshall Weiss joins us after the film to discuss Gene Wilder’s monumental contributions to the film and comedy world.

This film is presented by The Bernard & Carole Rabinowitz Philanthropic Fund of the Jewish Foundation of Greater Dayton.
