East and West in Bałuty

Description

Ad from the Yiddish newspaper Najer Folksblat publicizing a 1929 screening of East and West at the movie theater Bajka in Bałuty. Completed in 1923, East and West, Molly Picon's earliest film, tells the lighthearted story of a "modern" New York Jew and his energetic daughter.
