CAST A GIANT SHADOW (Theatrical Release USA 1966)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

Cast a Giant Shadow—unusual movie—tells the exodus story from a different viewpoint than the movie Exodus. The story of military man Colonel David Marcus (Kirk Douglas) and his involvement in that process easily earns its watch. This movie enhances the difficulties surrounding the 1948 establishment of the nation of Israel. Look for the all-star cast.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is a good rendition of this conflict, but Exodus serves the purpose at a higher level.
