What is it?
The 2015 YouTube video Fiddler On The Roof (4/10) Movie CLIP – If I Were A Rich Man (1971) HD by the YouTube channel Movieclips.
Here is the description for this video:
Tevye (Topol) dreams of fabulous wealth.
Norman Jewison’s adaptation of the long-running Broadway musical is set in the Ukranian ghetto village of Anatevka (the film was actually lensed in Yugoslavia). Israeli actor Topol repeats his London stage role as Tevye the milkman, whose equilibrium is constantly being challenged by his poverty, the prejudicial attitudes of non-Jews, and the romantic entanglements of his five daughters. Whenever the weight of the world becomes too much for him, Tevye carries on lengthy conversations with God, who does not answer but is at least more willing to listen than the milkman’s remonstrative wife Golde. After arranging a marriage between his oldest daughter Tzeitel and wealthy butcher Lazar Wolf, Tevye is forced to do some quick rearranging when the girl falls in love with poor tailor Motel Kamzoil. Fancying himself more broad-minded than his gentile oppressors, Tevye cannot accept the notion that his other daughter Chava would want to marry Fyedka, a non-Jew. And after shouting the praises of “tradition,” Tevye must change his tune-and his entire life-when he and his neighbors are forced out of Anatevka by the Czar’s minions. Topol’s co-stars include Norma Crane as Golde, Yiddish theater legend Molly Picon as Yente the matchmaker, and Leonard Frey as Motel.

This is probably my favorite scene from the movie Fiddler On The Roof, I could be wrong because I can not remember much of the movie now, I saw this movie years ago in maybe a Fine Arts class back in high school.
Our teacher that year did not finish the year because of some personal problems, but I think that she was there when this movie was shown and it was probably one of her favorites.
I remember most of us in the class enjoying this scene, and I still have this song in my music collection.
