    I think such Jewish flavored films were put paid to not only by the fact that they would be banned in Germany after 1933 but by the Code restrictions on possibly offending different ethnic groups, and Hollywood’s need to cater to audences in small towns who wouldn’t “get” this. But such comedy continued to pop up in short subjects after 1933 after it disappeared from features(a few Smith and Dale shorts in 1939, for instance, and “Goldstein, Goldstein, Goldstein and O’Brian” in a Three Stooges).
