Kaufman's Holiday Episode 5
Kaufman’s on a “holiday”, which is any day he’s not working a case. Like today, for instance. Anyways, this dame, Maura, comes into Sully’s bar. Her pop’s just thrown some big to do for her war hero brother. Only her brother’s a louse, and a Jew-hater to boot, and it’s debatable just how much a hero he actually is. What’s beyond question, however, is now he’s dead. Cops say it was an accident. Maura says she needs a P.I.
Looks like the holiday is over.
"Kaufman's Holiday" is about a self-loathing Jewish detective who's hired to investigate the death of an anti-Semitic war hero. Race hostility is ripe, income inequality abounds, corruption goes hand in hand with politics. Sound familiar? Welcome to 1945.
