Israel Movie Night: “Yoo-Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg” (2009)
Monday, January 14, 7:00 PM
92 minutes

“Yoo-Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg” tells the humorous and eye-opening story of television pioneer Gertrude Berg.  She was the creator, principal writer, and star of “The Goldbergs”, a popular radio show for 17 years, which became television’s very first character-driven domestic sitcom in 1949. On the air, Berg was the endearing matriarch Molly Goldberg—kibitzing with neighbors across airshafts in the Bronx (“Yoo-hoo, Mrs. Goldberg!”). Off air, Berg paved the way for women in the entertainment industry, winning the first ever Best Actress Emmy Award, earning a Tony on Broadway, and charming audiences on variety TV shows and through her advice column.

“Yoo Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg” includes fabulous, rare clips from “The Goldbergs” kinescopes, and other period TV shows and films including “The Ed Sullivan Show”, “The Honeymooners”, “The Perry Como Show”, “I Love Lucy”, “The Milton Berle Show”, and “The Marx Brothers”. The film also features marvelous interviews with historians and fans, including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Ed Asner (“The Mary Tyler Moore Show”), Norman Lear (“All in the Family”), Gary David Goldberg (“Family Ties”), Andrea Roane (CBS anchor), Susan Stamberg (NPR correspondent), and many others.

Sponsored by the Israel Committee.
Pizza, pop, popcorn, and chips will be served.
