Fiddler On The Roof

40 years on, this Broadway smash is looking better than ever on this tidy transfer

Fiddler on the Rood review

Miracle of miracles, Norman Jewison’s big, boisterous adap of one of Broadway’s most popular musicals has lived to the grand old age of 40.

To celebrate, it’s been fiddled into high def to liven up the three-hour schlep through the trials and tribulations of poor Jewish milkman Tevye (Topol).

The Oscar-winning lensing has been bolstered with a cleaner-than-ever transfer, while the 7.1 audio brings John Williams’ score to life.

No new extras, but Jewison’s shrugs and swears keep the featurettes kosher.
