KIRKUS REVIEW

Dore Schary, the famous Hollywood producer and Broadway playwright, now tells all vis a vis Jewish immigrant life in Newark as it was experienced by him and members of his family just prior to and during World War II. Thus For Special Occasions is funny and folksy, like Harry Golden and Gertrude Berg, full of graduation book sentiments and memory lane quality. In short, this is a sunny and sincere, if totally synthetic potpourri, full of the tears, laughter and fanciful innocence of yesteryear, bound to please the popular taste.
