Movie Info

In this fact-based film, distinguished U.S. Army Col. David Marcus (Kirk Douglas) is enlisted by the Israelis to perform the difficult task of preparing their fledgling nation for battle against the Arabs. Before long, he feuds with the local leaders, quits his post and goes back home to his pregnant wife (Angie Dickinson) in the United States. However, Marcus, who is Jewish himself, soon has a crisis of faith and decides to return to duty to help the untrained Israelis form an army.

Audience Reviews for Cast a Giant Shadow

  • Sep 01, 2007
    Hollywood's version of the birth of Israel and the men who fought to make it possible. As films of the '60s sometimes do, this one stresses the importance of Americans and their contributions to the cause, relegating all others to supporting roles. Such an awe-inspiring story deserved better scripting.
