Gambling Ship
A GAMBLING SHIP was a barge or other large vessel used to house a casino and often other venues of entertainment. Under the old three-mile limit of territorial waters they were anchored usually just over three nautical miles off the United States coastline to avoid governmental interference. Organized crime was frequently involved in their operation. Some state governments later tried to control the effect of gambling ships through the use of convoluted statutes. When territorial waters were redefined to 12 nm, this made the prospect of maintaining a gambling ship by any means extremely impractical.

Jew Suss (1934 Film)
JEW SüSS (in the US retitled POWER – JEW SUSS ) is a 1934 British historical romantic drama film based on Lion Feuchtwanger 's 1925 novel Jud Süß , about Joseph Süß Oppenheimer . Directed by Lothar Mendes , the film stars German actor Conrad Veidt in the role of Oppenheimer. The screenplay was written by Dorothy Farnum and Arthur Rawlinson . Unlike the Nazis' antisemitic film Jud Süß (1940), the British film is sympathetic to Jews, and generally considered to be a faithful adaptation of Feuchtwanger's novel. It was intended to be a condemnation of antisemitism , not a justification of it. The German version is considered by some to be an antisemitic response to Mendes' philo-semitic film

A SITUATION COMEDY, or SITCOM, is a genre of comedy centered on a fixed set of characters who carry over from episode to episode. Sitcoms can be contrasted with sketch comedy , where a troupe may use new characters in each sketch, and stand-up comedy , where a comedian tells jokes and stories to an audience. Sitcoms originated in radio , but today are found mostly on television as one of its dominant narrative forms. This form can also include mockumentaries . A situation comedy television program may be recorded in front of a studio audience , depending on the program's production format. The effect of a live studio audience can be imitated or enhanced by the use of a laugh track

Only Yesterday (1933 Film)
ONLY YESTERDAY is a 1933 American Pre-Code drama film about a young woman who becomes pregnant by her boyfriend before he rushes off to fight in World War I . It stars Margaret Sullavan (in her film debut) and John Boles . The film was based on the novel Briefe einer unbekannten (Letter from an Unknown Woman ) by Stefan Zweig , though he was not credited.

The film is set in a time frame close to that of Allen's book but otherwise bears no resemblance to it, and the appropriation of the title may simply have been an attempt to capitalize on the book's fame at the time of the film's release
