Review Eric Goldman's VISIONS, IMAGES AND DREAMS is a unique attempt t chronicle every picture produced in the Yiddish language, regardless of national origin...I applaud his filling a gap in the history of Jewish aesthetic pursuits. --Jerusalem Post

A foundational work in the history of Yiddish film...with the tenacity of a detective and the acuity of a cineaste, Goldman tracks down and lays out s the who, what ,where, and how of this magnificent, incandescent, and all too evanescent facet of Yiddish culture. --Jeremy Dauber, Columbia University

Steeped in tradition, rich in culture, laden with emotion (are) the flms Goldman treats (in this) admirable study. --Los Angeles Times
