Director: Robert Aldrich, USA, 1979, 119 min; Yiddish, Hebrew, English
Rabbi Avram Belinsky (Gene Wilder) lands in Philadelphia intending to travel to San Francisco, where he plans on starting a synagogue. Quickly relieved of his belongings by a group of con artists, Avram optimistically sets out alone on foot toward the Wild West. He gets into one scrape after another until he is rescued, in a way, by a compassionate horseman named Tommy (Harrison Ford). Unfortunately, Tommy may not be quite as heroic as he seems, and it is still a long way to California.
