Over the Brooklyn Bridge
Over the Brooklyn Bridge is a 1984 American romantic comedy film directed and produced by Menahem Golan, written by Anrold Somkin, and starring Elliott Gould. It has the working title of My Darling Shiksa, referring to a woman outside of the Jewish faith.
Alby Sherman is a Jewish man whose father died when he was young. He and his mother run a luncheonette in Brooklyn, but Alby has negotiated the purchase of an upscale restaurant in Manhattan, a project he cannot finance on his own. He asks his wealthy Uncle Benjamin to lend him the money. His uncle imposes only one requirement: he will lend Alby the money, but only if he leaves his "shikse" (gentile) girlfriend.
