(The National Center for Jewish Film)

1922, dir. E. Mason Hopper. Goldwyn Pictures’ 1922 silent-movie adaptation of Anna Yezierska’s classic novel of the Lower East Side is a landmark document: a Jewish-immigrant-dominated film industry’s first serious depiction of the Jewish-immigrant experience. After languishing out of print for decades, it was lovingly restored in 2010 by the National Center for Jewish Film and is available now on DVD.
