Pic of the Day: “Ain’t We Got Fun” revisited

Our pic today takes another gander at “Ain’t We Got Fun,” the episode of The Untouchables that was first broadcast on November 12, 1959.

Ain't We Got Fun - 1959

Buloff and his wife were leading figures in Yiddish theater before ending up on Broadway, with Buloff later adding films and television to his repertoire. Upon his death in 1985, he left behind a rather impressive archive of his life and work which you can read about here.
