YOO HOO, MRS. GOLDBERG
This is the fascinating story of Molly Berg, nÃ©e Tillie Edelstein, âthe Oprah of her day,â a pioneering radio and TV writer (12,000 scripts), advertiser, producer and actress. A socially prominent woman, she created the character of Molly Goldberg, in Americaâs first sitcom, daring to combine comedy and social commentary, embodied in a loveable, middle class Jewish mother whose Yiddish inflexions were acquired for her role. Berg was a tireless fighter for the black-listed artists forced from her show during the McCarthy era. Even if you never saw her show, The Goldbergs, you will find this film a treasure.
