Don't miss it

There are not many films made about Israel birth. I won't add many things to what have already said the other users, except no one of them have talked about George Sherman's SWORD IN THE DESERT, starring Jeff Chandler, back in the 50's. I have it in my library and have not seen it since a while now, so I won't compare the two features. Say which is better than the other. I just say that this one, the Israeli, looks like a British or European film; it is directed by Thorold Dickinson, a director from UK. Another British could have made it: Lewis Gilbert, Guy Green, Ronald Neame...It looks like a UK film because of the story, filming, characterization, music score. Yes I think of a British feature.

But it is a really good movie, with interesting characters. The US industry would have made a quite different film. I can't explain more.

But, again, there are no many films about Palestine in the late 40's, and the war of independence. Only this one, SWORD IN THE DESERT, CAST A GIANT SHADOW and of course EXODUS !!!

A real gem.
