Sallah Shabati (1964)
Israeli stage and film favorite Topol tops the cast of Sallah. Topol plays a Jewish refugee who moves his family to Israel shortly after the official establishment of that "promised land."

One of the most popular films in the history of Israeli cinema, this Oscar-nominated comedy catapulted Topol to international fame, resulting in his getting the title role of the musical Fiddler on the Roof.
Wonderfully rude and very funny. One of the finest films made in Israel.
