Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The flimsy plot of the Yiddish-language Catskill Honeymoon concerns a elderly Jewish-American couple celebrating their 50th anniversary. This story device is merely an excuse for a parade of comedy and musical acts, performed by the troupers and "toomlers" of Ma Holder Young's Gap Hotel, situated in the New York resort town of Parksville. Don't look for any blossoming big stars amongst the performers. The only remotely recognizable face belongs to Mary LaRoche, who became a TV leading lady in the late 1950s. Catskill Honeymoon is only barely cinematic; still, it is a valuable record of a rapidly vanishing form of entertainment.
