46 and washed up, Brando is forced to star in LAST TANGO IN PARIS, a shocking and graphic account of sexual obsession. He pours himself into the role like he never has before, blurring the line between acting and reality.
In July 1976, an Air France flight from Tel-Aviv to Paris via Athens was hijacked and forced to land in Entebbe, Uganda. The Jewish passengers were separated and held hostage in demand to release many terrorists held in Israeli prisons. After much debate, the Israeli government sent an elite commando unit to raid the airfield and release the hostages.
It's not mentioned nor shown in the movie, but the Israelis destroyed several Ugandan MiGs on the ground of Entebbe airport, to keep the aircraft from being used against them, and as part of an agreement with the Kenyan government in exchange for allowing the raid aircraft to refuel in Kenya.

A low-budget remake of an extraordinary event which leaves out major parts of the story and slants others.
The fact that the raid also took out most of the Ugandan Air Force on the ground was never mentioned. And in the final credits and 'what then happened' there was no mention of the fact that the Air France captain was awarded the Legion d'honneur , and the rest of crew received gallantry medals for staying with their passengers throughout, was not mentioned. That will not go down well in France. The dance routine 'overlay' of the actual raid is both ridiculous and overdone. The political slanting of the whole has been well covered by others.
