Every now and again, our matrix verdict is just not enough. Oh, sure, the "Not a Jew" / "Barely a Jew" / "Borderline Jew" / "Jew" options usually tell the story, but sometimes we need more.
Oh, Teri Garr is not Jewish, there is no doubt there. But simply slapping "Not a Jew" on the profile wouldn't do her justice. We'll let Mel Brooks explain.
Yes, the one and only Mel Brooks, who worked with Garr in "Young Frankenstein". He called the actress, who dated a lot of Jewish men, "a shiksa dream". But it didn't end there. Brooks labeled her "Jewish by injection"... We'll let your imagination run wild.
"Teri was sensationally innocent and naive," said Brooks, "We could play our dirty jokes with her because her intentions were so pure."
