500,000 Black (500,000 Shachor) 1977 - Israeli Movie DVD
Two comedians borrow 500,000 Israeli pounds (about US$ 90,000 of 1977) from an entrepreneur who launders the mafia money via his night club. This is a Mediterranean comedy, clean family fare.
Hebrew with English subtitles. Available for PAL (EURO) systems ONLY.
What do two bumbling comedians want to do with 500,000 Israeli Pounds? No less than stage a popular musical "Awaiting Godo". Needless to say their show has no success, the mafia wants the money back, and the heroes have to run and hide. Israel in the 1970s was a spectacular jazz stage. The soundtrack features a rich spectrum of Mediterranean music, jazz, funk, and ethnic funk performed by Israeli artists including an on-stage appearance of the African Hebrews.
