  Los Angeles Times file photo  

[Update: This photo stumped the brain trust! And perhaps with good reason. It was apparently never published in The Times and is from a somewhat obscure movie called “The Fixer,” which is not on Netflix and may only be available on cassette, judging by posts on the Internet. The film was written by Dalton Trumbo and based on a Pulitzer-winning novel by Bernard Malamud. The photo is stamped Dec. 5, 1979, although the film was released in December 1968. Keep reading for Charles Champlin’s review.]

And here's the latest in our  continuing exploration of production shots....

Looks like Fiddler On The Roof but that seems too obvious

Though I may be the only Jew in America who hasn't seen it, I am guessing 'Fiddler on the Roof'.

I was just dragged to finally see it on Netflix, and yeccch, what a big nothing. You haven't missed a thing, Arye.

Yes, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. That is Norma Crane at the bottom left of the fourth photo.

THE FRISCO KID and Robert Aldrich?
