Funny and Heartwarming Animated Family Adventure
Based on the Stories of Acclaimed Author Isaac Bashevis Singer

***************************************
THE REAL SHLEMIEL
***************************************
New to DVD on November 4

* * * * 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.
