Description

Grand Valley State University will commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of Sidney Lumet’s ground-breaking drama, The Pawnbroker, with a free screening and a lecture by film historian Annette Insdorf of Columbia University.

Based on Edward Lewis Wallant’s 1961 novel, The Pawnbroker (1964) is the story of Sol Nazerman, a concentration camp survivor whose traumatic memories are often triggered by the desperate people who come to his Harlem pawn shop. Starring Rod Steiger in an Academy-Award-nominated performance, The Pawnbroker is the first Hollywood film to examine the Holocaust from a survivor’s perspective.
