In this short film set in the 1950s, Paul Soles is wonderful as Shalinsky, an eccentric Jewish intellectual who believes that his college professor, Mortimer Griffin (Ron Lea), is secretly a Jew who has changed his name. A smart, funny and affectionate adaptation by director Mort Ransen and screenwriter Gerald Wexler of Mordecai Richler’s short story. “An expert effort in capturing the essence of a short story on the small screen.” (Variety) An Atlantis Films / National Film Board of Canada co-production.
