Max proposes in the rumble seat of a Model B Ford on a blind date on Friday, and elopes with Ray on Sunday, to be married by a Justice of the Peace. As a defense worker and father of two, Max avoids the draft until the last year of WW II. He fails his overseas eye exam, and trains as an army cook.Max is profoundly affected when he learns of the horror of the Holocaust. He joins a synagogue and embraces his Jewish heritage-sort of.
