A Day at the Races and Young Frankenstein: Two films released 37 years apart but united by remarkably similar senses of humor fueled by a uniquely Jewish perspective on mad doctors and mad love. The central characters of both movies blend predictable feelings of persecution with a healthy irreverence for convention and a disregard for stuffy authority. Join another Jewish doctor named Arnold T. Blumberg as he fills you in on some of the fun behind-the-scenes anecdotes that make the Marx Bros.’ A Day at the Races and Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein two of his all-time favorites in the annals of Jewish movie medicine. Schedule for the Day: 11:00am – Screening of Day at the Races 1:00pm – Lecture with Dr. Blumberg 2:00pm – Screening of Young Frankenstein
