Harry Plotnick, the unlikely protagonist of this extraordinary cult film that sat on the shelf for two decades after its completion, is a small-time Jewish gangster re-entering society after a stint in prison. Shifting uncomfortably between the numbers racket and a kosher catering business, he finds himself a misfit in both worlds. 1969, 81 minutes. 

Discussion led by Library Director Howard Freedman.
