I believe this was Dolores Hart's last appearance in a movie before she entered a convent - where she still is today. I first saw this movie as an impressionable 11-year-old in 1963; even then I thought that Dolores was a refined and beautiful actress: personified by an innate sense of pure innocence and vulnerability - and accentuated by those gorgeous inchoate eyes. The movie's premise deals with the repatriation - or more accurately the establishment of the nation of Israel by Jewish refugees following their release from the concentration camps at the end of W.W.II.
However, the appeal of this movie - to me - was the captivating performance of Dolores Hart: my first on-screen infatuation. Tastefully sentimental.
