Lies My Father Told Me is a 1975 Canadian film made in Montreal Quebecmarker. It was directed by Ján Kadár and stars Jeffrey Lynas as an orthodox Jewish boy growing up in 1920s Montrealmarker.

The original story was written by Ted Allan in 1949. Allan, a Jew from East End Montreal, was working at an advertising agency. David Rome, editor of the Canadian Jewish Congress Bulletin asked him to write a story immediately. Allan thought up a story and had it in his hands within hours.

It eventually became this Academy Award-nominated film and a novella. The story tells of a six year old boy who would travel with his grandfather on an old horse-pulled cart through the alleyways of Montreal. The two would call out to residents asking to collect their old junk. The boy's grandfather was religious but his father was not. Eventually the grandfather died as does his horse, leaving the boy feeling bitter against his secular father.
