Today is Tuesday.
You know what that means.
We're gonna have a special GUEST!!!!!
I guess it is pretty obvious to you all by now, that I LOVE musicals. (Sorry, Linda at 2nd cup of coffee, but the truth must come out).
This next clip is from one of my favorites...yes, I know I always say that whatever clip I am playing is from one of my favorites, but well, they are.
ANYWAY, it is kind of long, (passes the 3 to 3 1/2 min mark) but If you have seen this movie, you will probably love watching it, but if you haven't seen the movie, it may seem odd to you.
If you don't want to watch the whole thing, then at least fast forward to the 4 minute spot. Look at his expression when he sings about studying the Bible. His love for it seems SO intense.
My other favorite part is right at the end when he is singing to God and asks, "Would it spoil some vast eternal plan...If I were a wealthy man?!"
The movie Fiddler on the Roof was released in 1971.
It won 3 Academy Awards and 2 Golden Globes.
It was first made into a Broadway musical in 1964 that was based on the book, written in Yiddish by Sholem Aleichem in 1894.
The Broadway production won NINE Tony Awards.
(Although not in this clip, if you watch this movie, you may notice that Perchik is played by Starsky (Michael Glaser) from the TV series Starsky and Hutch.
My Trivia- I LOVE the power and feeling that this actor, Chain Topol, puts into his acting and singing, as the character Tevye.
