Regarding Wick’s Review
Nice review. Makes me want to see it. Two cool pieces of trivia you may or may not know. First of all, Aleichem and Twain met. Aleichem told him “They say I’m the Jewish Mark Twain” to which Twain responded, “Correction, I am the American Sholom Aleichem” Number two: when Aleichem died in 1916 his funeral in Queens attracted(this is true) 100,000 plus mourners, making it the biggest funeral ever held at that time.
