The New York Times  on a film director who reportedly died today

"Mr. Hiller was born on Nov. 13, 1923, in Edmonton, Alberta,
one of three children of Harry Hiller and the former Rose Garfin,
Jewish immigrants from Poland. His father ran a secondhand
musical instrument store in Edmonton.

His first contact with show business came through his parents,
who formed a community theater in Edmonton to present plays
in Yiddish. He helped his parents build and paint sets, and made
his acting debut at age 11."
