Product Description

In a career that has spanned over 50 years, Bikel has excelled in all aspects of the entertainment industry. He has appeared in numerous stage productions, and costarred with Mary Martin (at her insistence) in the original Broadway production of 'The Sound Of Music,' and has performed the role of Tevye in over 2,000 performances of 'Fiddler On The Roof'. His many film credits include, 'The African Queen' with Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn, 'The Defiant Ones', for which he received an Academy Award nomination, 'My Fair Lady', 'The Russians Are Coming', and the Frank Zappa cult classic, '200 Motels'.
