The Angel Levine is a drama from 1970 directed by Jan Kadar based on a short story by Bernard Malamud. The film is about a poor, Jewish, New York City tailor who can't seem to get a break in life. His business has burned down, his son was lost in a war, and his only daughter married out of their faith. Morris Mishkin (Zero Mostel) can no longer work because he suffers from a bad back and to make life more miserable, his wife Fanny ( Ida Kaminska) is suffering from a terminal illness. Mishkin's faith is tested when he meets a mysterious black man named Alexander Levine (Harry Belafonte) who claims he is Mishkin's guardian angel. Levine informs Morris that he is a bona-fide angel of God and Mishkin must trust him and believe in him so he can help, but Mishkin doubts the man is an angel, much less his Jewish guardian angel. Will Mishkin accept that he has a guardian angel, and can Levine really help? Watch The Angel Levine to find out.moreless
