Two films with Jewish themes received Oscar nominations. A Welsh film about a romance between a Jewish boy and a Welsh girl received a nomination for best foreign film. In “Solomon and Gaenor,” a takeoff on “Romeo and Juliet” that includes dialogue in Welsh, English and Yiddish, Solomon conceals his Jewish identity until he is forced to reveal the truth. “One Day in September,” a film about the 1972 Olympic Games massacre of Israeli athletes, was nominated for best documentary.
