Summer respites in the Catskills were a way of life for Jewish New Yorkers during the first six or seven decades of the Twentieth Century. Presenting films such as Billy Crystal’s Mr. Saturday Night, Dirty Dancing and Having Wonderful Time with Ginger Rogers, Kupferberg and Edelman discuss issues relating to the type of entertainment presented at Catskill hotels, the importance of time away from New York City, dating, parent-child conflicts—and of course, the food!
