Tune in to TCM: Happy Hanukkah

Turner Classic Movies is celebrating the start of Hanukkah tomorrow night with a mini-marathon of inspirational Jewish-themed films.

Otto Preminger's Exodus (starring Paul Newman, Eva Marie Saint and an Oscar nominated Sal Mineo) tells of the post-WWII birth of Israel. For a lighter subject, Barbra Streisand stars as a girl disguised as a boy who falls in love with a boy but marries a girl in her musical version of Yentl. Wrapping up the evening, Topol is Tevye in Norman Jewison's film adaptation of the Broadway classic Fiddler on the Roof.
