Based on Philip Roth’s award winning novella, GOODBYE, COLUMBUS is a delicious satire of the Jewish nouveau riche. Ali MacGraw in her debut major film role captures the archetypal Jewish American Princess, and Neil Klugman (Richard Benjamin) as a working class Rutger’s graduate is the perfect foil. Released in 1969, it is a reminder of the distance the Jew had come in America from the early days on the Lower East Side.
