Directed, cowritten and starring Barbra Streisand, “YENTL” (1983) was adapted from Isaac Bashevis Singer’s story about a girl (Streisand) who defies tradition while debating Jewish law and theology with her beloved scholar-father. After her father’s death, Yentl disguises herself as a young man so she can continue her studies in yeshiva. Her deception involves her study partner (Mandy Patinkin) and his fiancee (Amy Irving). Featuring an Oscar-winning score by MIchel Legrand, Marilyn and Alan Bergman.
