Cult-fave director Edgar Ulmer helmed several "ethnic" films during the 1930s. Ulmer's The Singing Blacksmith was targeted towards the then-thriving Yiddish market. Musical headliner Moishe Oysher plays the titular blacksmith, whose happy marriage to Miriam Riselle is threatened by interloper Florence Weiss. The film is based on David Pinski's popular Yiddish stage play Yankel Der Schmidt. Watch for a very young Herschel Bernardi (with full head of hair) in a flashback sequence.
