Shoeshiner extraordinaire


This is as good as a New Yorker gets: meet Don Ward the shoeshiner and enjoy his devotion to making shoes shine, by using his streetwise attitude to attract clients. His philosophy on shining shoes is actually a deeper philosophy on life. We love the way he pitches his offerings to passes by, both extremely witty and extremely convincing.

We feel it is a blessing, watching someone so dedicated to his job, putting his whole heart and soul into it. We all need a Don in our neighborhood, just to get our daily dose of enthusiasm and spirit. For now, this movie will have to do. But nothing holds you back from watching it over and over again if you need your fix.
