The Plot Against Harry w/ PJ Grisar | Jews On Film


In this week’s episode, Daniel & Harry are joined by PJ Grisar, Culture Writer for The Forward, to discuss the 1971 hidden gem “The Plot Against Harry,” directed by Michael Roemer and starring Martin Priest as the eponymous Harry.

Listen along as they chronicle Harry’s ”teshuva” journey following his time in prison, dive into the authentic representation of a ‘70s New York Jewish community, and lose track of all the movie’s weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, and other Jewish celebrations.

As always, they end the episode by ranking the film’s Jewishness in terms of its cast & crew, content, and themes.
