Andrew Erlich presents The Long Shadows: The Story of Jake Erlich
Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center
Houston, TX
Share this event:

Psychologist, author and nationally known speaker, Dr. Andrew Erlich tells the remarkable life of his beloved uncle, Jake Erlich (Jack Earle), one of the world's tallest men. Encompassing the years 1906-1940, we travel through the immigrant experience in turn-of-the-century Texas, silent films, circus life, the modern art movement, the Great Depression and the domestic anti-Semitism prior to World War II.  As an artist, poet, silent film star, circus performer, and at an astonishing 8 foot 6 inches, Jake's life depicts the universal story of the challenge to overcome adversity, the power of self-acceptance, the danger of stereotypes and the healing which comes from self-expression through the creative arts. "  a uniquely courageous soul who proved to be a giant in more ways than one." Diana Serra Cary, author/film historian, former child star.
