In this 1979 comedy classic, Gene Wilder gives the most endearing performance of his career as a hapless but loveable Polish rabbi who gamely traverses the Wild West. The cultures of the Old World and the Old West collide as the intrepid rabbi – on his way to lead a synagogue in San Francisco – and his outlaw cowboy cohort (Harrison Ford) encounters a series of rollicking misadventures. With something to appeal to audiences of all ages, this odd-couple comedy is rife with Jewish humor. Watch for the scene in the monastery, where the loquacious rabbi inadvertently causes the monks to break their vow of silence. Bring the family to enjoy this cinema classic. VIEW THE TRAILER.
