Molly was known for her impish charm and comic brilliance. Born on Broome Street she first appeared in vaudeville at age six. In the 1920s, she was dubbed “the sweetheart of Second Avenue,” starring in hundreds of productions in the Yiddish theaters there. She had great staying power, and was in the 1971 film version of Fiddler on the Roof (she played Yentl) and the television series Car 54, Where Are You? She brought Yiddish culture to a wider American audience.

Molly Picon, actress.1898-1982
