A Film by Ephraim Kishon
(Israel, 1964, 110 Minutes, Black & white, Hebrew, English subtitles, Cast: Chaim Topol, Geula Nuni, Gila Almagor, Zaharira Harifai, Shaike Levi, Ya'ackov Banai, Arik Einstein)
Israel - shortly after the official establishment of that ''promised land.''
Unlike his hard-working new neighbors, Sallah is shiftless and lazy, forever finding the easiest, most painless means to support his family. Amazingly, Sallah becomes a hero when, while wheeling and dealing, he uncovers misappropriations and corner-cutting in Israel's housing industry.
