Description: Israeli stage and film favorite Topol tops the cast of Sallah. Topol plays a Jewish refugee who moves his family to Israel shortly after the official establishment of that promised land. Unlike his hard-working new neighbors, Topol is shiftless and lazy, forever finding the easiest, most painless means to support his family. Amazingly, Topol becomes a hero when, while wheeling and dealing, he uncovers misappropriations and corner-cutting in Israel's housing industry. This Menahem Golan production was originally released in Israel as Sallah Shabati.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
