Fiddler on the Roof (1970)

We've had a billion threads on the film versions of Mame and Hello, Dolly!, but as far as I recall not even one on this film, even though it was superior to either of them. Topol is really sexy in this film--I wanted to jump his bear's body. And Paul Glaser is incredibly hot as Perchik. But why are the daughters so difficult to differentiate from one another in this movie? They have no distinct personalities--just distinct suitors.(It's a problem that goes back to the original Broadway show.) And why is Golde the wife also so colorless? (That's NOT a problem with the original stage show.) And why are the lyrics to the songs so weak when the music for them is so terrific?
