This 2009 American, 92-minute film written, produced, and directed by Aviva Kempner, is a humorous and eye-opening story of Gertrude Berg. She was the creator and principle writer and star of The Goldbergs, a popular radio show for 17 years, which became television’s very first character-driven domestic sitcom in 1949. Berg received the first Best    Actress Emmy in history and paved the way for women in the entertainment industry. The film includes interviews with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, actor Ed Asner, producer Normal Lear (All in the Family), and NPR correspondent Susan Stamberg.
