Yippie we have Nanach - Uman Rosh Hashana
Famous Hollywood movie producer (who I never heard of, neither did the chasid in the film, apparently part of the humor was introducing himself to an ultra-black-from-head-to-toe hasid as a famous h.m.p. and asking the chasid if he heard of him). Paul Mazurski gets persuaded by his optometrist is L.A. to go to Uman for the New Years (Rosh Hashana). This inspired the movie Yippie - the trailer can be found here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Khd3fP5Fp5I [because of slight preetzus, I can't embed the video here].
