9: Film, Topol as Tevye in Norman Jewison's Fiddler on the Roof, 1971.
The film version of Fiddler on the Roof starred the Israeli actor Chaim Topol, who had headlined as Tevye in the original London production of the musical. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor.
Suggested activity: Have students watch the clip. Ask them: what has stayed the same and what has changed, from Mostel's presentation of Tevye to Topol’s?
