Who doesn’t love a hot bagel? Never had a bagel? So sad for you. This wonderful short film is from the Brooklyn Public Library film archives. Filmed in the heart of Brooklyn, New York during the 1970s, the film is the story of how to make real bagels. It covers the entire process from making the dough, to baking and selling. The narrative offers a slice of life look at the changing nature of the bagel business and Brooklyn culture.

I’ll have a dozen everything.
