Sidney Lumet has a colorful past...that started in the Yiddish theater.
He's been married several times: one wife was Gloria Vanderbilt. Another wife made him Lena Horne's son-in-law.
One of his personal quotes is a brilliant one: "There's no such thing as a small part. There are just small actors."
Just a brief look at Sidney Lumet.
Shabbat Shalom...with the stress on shalom/peace.
