Raid on Entebbe, 1977.
Directed by Irvin Kershner.
When a hijacked plane is diverted to Uganda's Entebbe Airport with over a hundred Israeli passengers on board, the Israeli government authorises a top-secret military raid to free the hostages.
Not to be confused with 1976's Victory at Entebbe - which also happens to feature a similarly impressive cast that includes Kirk Douglas, Richard Dreyfuss, Anthony Hopkins, Burt Lancaster and Elizabeth Taylor - Raid on Entebbe is a Golden Globe-winning TV movie from The Empire Strikes Back director Irvin Kershner that recounts the 1976 hijacking of an Air France plane travelling between Tel Aviv and Paris, and the subsequent counter-terrorist rescue mission carried out by members of the Israeli Defense Forces at Entebbe Airport in Uganda.
