“When the Nazis came to power, most of the world looked the other way, but not Carl Laemmle.”
-Rabbi Marvin Hier, Founder of Simon Wiesenthal Center

Carl Laemmle, the German-born Jewish immigrant who founded Universal Pictures and saved over 300 Jewish families from Nazi Germany, gets his due in this riveting biopic by James L. Freedman (Glickman). Featuring a wealth of archival footage, as well as interviews with film luminaries, historians, and descendants of Laemmle, this exceptional documentary is an absolute must for cinema lovers and history buffs alike!
