There’s a new documentary about Gertrude Berg in theaters this month titled Yoo Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg. I read about it in Friday’s edition The Hartford Courant in which Susan Dunne reviewed the film, directed by Aviva Kempner. You can read here review here.
Dunne calls the documentary “a charming meander down memory lane” and refers to footage from the series as “priceless, more well-preserved than many TV shows of that era.” She does point out that it “falls into the common bio-documentary trap of overcooking every small fact.” But overall the review is positive and Yoo Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg is given three stars (out of a possible four).
The official website for the documentary can be found here and includes a trailer, photo albums, a list of theaters and more. You can also watch the trailer at Apple’s website. And here is the documentary’s IMDb entry.
