The Littlest of Kings

To commemorate the centenary of Sholem Aleichem, The Littlest of Kings was produced as part of the anthology series CBC Folio for Passover 1959. Adapted by author and screenwriter Charles Israel from a short story by the Yiddish writer, this beautifully-made production directed by Harvey Hart tells the story of three widowed sisters (played by Sylvia Lennick, Helene Winston and Anna Reiser) and a young boy who comes to fill an empty place in their lives. A forgotten gem that evokes feelings of sadness, warmth and humour, The Littlest of Kings features a wonderful supporting cast that includes Paul Kligman, Ben Lennick, and Isaac Swerdlow.
