Lisa speaks of seeing an Israeli tank with a Star of David on its side after her escape from Auschwitz. The State of Israel was not created until after the end of WWII. There were no "Israeli tanks" in the European theater of operations. See more »
Lisa is a powerful drama about a German concentration camp refugee, played by Dolores Hart, trying to get to Israel to begin a new life after the war, and the Dutch Police Inspector, played by Stephen Boyd, who decides to help her. The story is gripping and intense and the performances are superb. Both Stephen Boyd and Dolores Hart turn in one of the finest performances of their careers and so does the all-star supporting cast, including Donald Pleasance and Hugh Griffith. Wonderful film for a rainy day afternoon.
