I Want to be a Mother is the cry of heroine Amelia (Hannah Hollander) in this Yiddish-language film. Raised to believe she is the daughter of a Bronx couple, Amelia is shocked to learn that she is the illegitimate offspring of her so-called aunt. Even worse, the father of Amelia's husband is actually her own long-lost father! Under these circumstances, the prospect of Amelia having a child of her own seems out of the question -- but the day is saved by a last-minute revelation provided by marriage broker Chaim Bok (Leo Fuchs). Though shabbily produced, I Want to be a Mother is consistently entertaining.
