The Yiddish-language Two Sisters stars stage favorites Jenny Goldstein (in her film debut) and Sylvia Dell in the title roles. The story focuses on the ladies' rivalry over the affections of handsome doctor Muni Seroff. Goldstein at first seems to be the victor in this romantic triangle, winning Seroff's undying gratitude as she sacrifices all during the early years of his struggling practice. In the end, however, Goldstein realizes that it is Dell whom Seroff truly loves, and she generously steps aside. There wasn't a dry eye in the house during the final scenes thanks to the all-stops-out performance of Jenny Goldstein, one of the great names of the Yiddish theatre.
