Subject:        Noble Shylock

For a brief review of the recent film THE MERCHANT OF VENICE:

When and if possible how did the notion of a politically correct, noble
Shylock emerge?

I knew about the Yiddish productions of the 20s and 30s -- notably as I
recall -- Morris Charnowsky, but I would guess the construction of a
noble Shylock emerged earlier, perhaps much earlier. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Harvey Roy Greenberg MD
