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 »
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.
