"Der Poyatz" management Norman Furman. "Herman Yablokoff (1903 1981) ; An eastern European-born songwriter, lyricist, actor, playwright, director, and producer probably most known as the composer of the song Papirosn. Yablokoff became famous on Second Avenue and went on to tour in Israel, Scandinavia, Europe, Cuba, and South America, frequently playing opposite his wife, Bella Meisel. One of the many major musical shows he wrote, directed, and produced was Der payatz (The Clown) , which catapulted him to even wider fame under that sobriquet. He further popularized that role on his weekly Yiddish radio program of the same name. Papirosn (Cigarettes) , from his play with the same title, is probably his most enduring song. Most likely an adaptation of a European folk melody to his own melodramatic lyrics, it is still sung today. " (Milken Archive) Subjects: Songs, Yiddish - United States. OCLC lists 3 copies.
