A Woman called Golda
24 December 2005 | by buffalogal36See all my reviews

If ever there was a prime example as to how a woman should conduct herself,in both private and political life;it is Golda.The integrity,selflessness,humanity and dignity is supreme. She was the finest modern example of Rightiousness I have seen in my (almost) 70 years of life.Golda and Miss Bergman herself were dying of cancer as the movie was being made,and I can only imagine the difficulties of the demands of just filming a movie while in "good health" can draw from an actor/actress;what a Woman they both were.Both will always be my "Heros" and the most shining example of what a woman can do to better Life itself for humanity.May G-D Bless both there souls and give them their JUST rewards.
