A news bulletin heard on a radio reports that the ship Exodus full of Jewish immigrants bound for Palestine is threatening to blow itself up in port in Cyprus. The real Aliyah Bet ship "Exodus 1947" sailed from Marseilles and was impounded in Haifa. The story told on the radio is actually from the 1958 Leon Uris novel "Exodus". See more »

O Jerusalem is a terrible movie. Very bad, stilted acting and a very, very bad script. I had looked forward to watching this movie because I read the book and have emotional views regarding Israel's war of independence (or as the Arabs call it, "The catastrophe").
This movie had virtually no resemblance to that book, which was an excellent portrayal of the siege of Jerusalem and was not otherwise burdened down by a phony relationship between a Palestinian and an American Jewish fighter. The pace of the movie did not allow for any meaningful storyline development. Some of the acting was so bad it was laughable, which is sad, because there is no comedy in this story. The lines written only served to exacerbate the bad acting. The shame of it is that while probably low budget, the movie had suffcient props and scenery to have allowed for a better production.
My sad recommendation is to strongly urge you to stay away!
