Cast a Giant Shadow (1966) Part fact, part fiction, Cast a Giant Shadow powerfully dramatizes Israel’s historic 1947-1948 struggle for independence. Both realistic war story and passionate romance, it features an all-star cast including Kirk Douglas, Senta Berger, and Angle Dickenson, as well as Yul Brynner, John Wayne and Frank Sinatra in notable supporting roles. From the liner notes.
Cast a Giant Shadow is a 1966 film, that’s right, BEFORE the reunification of Jerusalem, the occupation of the territories, and capturing of the Sinai and Golan. It was still two years after the founding of the PLO. The epic film was produced and directed by Melville Shavelson and distributed by MGM.
