They’re handing out the Oscars this weekend. Hollywood may be in the city of Angels, but when some movie people are jealous or skeptical of other people’s projects, they have a devil of a time keeping a straight face. It has happened a lot with motion pictures that many people might put in the ‘Jewish movie’ category.

Cases in point:
