East and West

EAST AND WEST features classic scenes of young Molly Picon who lifts weights, boxes, teaches young Yeshiva "bochers" to shimmy and steals away from Yom Kippur prayers to gorge herself! She and her father return to Galicia (Poland) from New York to attend her cousin's wedding. Molly could not be more different from her religious European relatives. Her crazy antics and New World ways turn the lives of her shtetl relatives upside down. Unexpectedly, however, she meets her match in an engaging young scholar who forsakes tradition and joins the secular world to win her heart. A hilarious saga produced in 1924. Molly Picon is a wonderful role model for the renegade in all of us!
