    * * * * Culver City, CA (August 25, 2003) - A hilarious and heart-warming, song-filled
    animated adventure based on the charming and timeless "Stories for Children" collection by
    Nobel Prize-winning author Isaac Bashevis Singer (Yentl, Enemies: A Love Story), THE REAL
    SHLEMIEL is a good-hearted Jewish fairy tale about good overcoming evil. *THE REAL
    SHLEMIEL premieres on DVD just in time for the holidays on November 4 from Columbia
    TriStar Home Entertainment.

    * * * * Young Aaron, accompanied by his wise-cracking pet goat Zlateh, journeys to the village
    of Chelm to stay with his Uncle Shlemiel, Aunt Sarah and their three daughters. *Chelm is an
    idyllic, peaceful village filled with lovable fools, which has recently come under attack by an
    evil sorcerer. *With the aid of his wily fox, the sorcerer steals the magical "Book of Marvels"
    from the Chelmites. *He conjures up a Golem, a gargantuan beast, which he orders to destroy the
    defenseless town. *Aaron embarks on an exciting, comical odyssey to foil the wicked wizard and
    prevent him from taking over the world. *

    * * * * The simple, yet fantastical story of an orphaned boy in Poland features the voices of
    Emmy Award-winner Fyvush Finkel (TV's "Boston Public," "Picket Fences") as narrator,
    Tommy Michaels (TV's "All My Children"') as young Aaron and actress Tovah Feldshuh
    (Kissing Jessica Stein). *Featuring delightful music by three-time Oscar®-winner Michel
    Legrand (Summer of '42, The Thomas Crown Affair) and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winner Sheldon
    Harnick (The Fiddler on the Roof), THE REAL SHLEMIEL is a real crowd pleaser.
