It’s 1850 and new rabbi Avram Belinski sets out from Philadelphia toward San Francisco. Cowpoke bandit Tom Lillard hasn’t seen a rabbi before. But he knows when one needs a heap of help. Gene Wilder and Harrison Ford are one feisty team as rabbi and rescuer in this rough-‘n’-ready romp that rivals Wilder’s earlier Blazing Saddles in Wild West hilarity.

Guest Speaker: Stephen Soreff, MD, aka “Doc Steve,” is a nationally known author, lecturer, and teacher in mental health services. He has authored ten books on the subject. He teaches in Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of New Hampshire (OLLI at UNH) film series classes called Madness and the Movies and the Roots and Routes of Jewish Humor: What HeBrews. He has written and lectured about humor’s healing power.
