The Prince and the DybbukWho was Moshe Walks really? The son of a poor Jewish blacksmith from Ukraine, he died in Italy as Prince Michael Waszynski and was known as a Hollywood producer and exiled Polish aristocrat. He made more than 50 films, including cinema hits with Sophia Loren and Claudia Cardinale. However, only one film was his true obsession: The Dybbuk. Based on an old Jewish legend, it’s the most important and mystical Yiddish film ever made, directed by Waszynski shortly before the outbreak of World War II.
