The Mighty Chaim Topol Passes

Acclaimed for his performance in Canadian director Norman Jewison’s classic 1971 film, Israel’s Topol repeated his role as Tevye 3,500 times between 1967 and 2009!

(Oddly, the film’s Jewish financial backers were surprised when Jewison told them he wasn’t a Jew, but they went on to back him and the film anyway.)
