Cast a Giant Shadow

Loading...
Part fact, part fiction, Cast a Giant Shadow powerfully dramatizes Israel's heroic 1947-48 struggle for independence. Both realistic war story and passionate romance, the film centers on the legendary David "Mickey" Marcus, whose motto was "life isn't a spectator sport, you've just got to get involved." Kirk Douglas gives a strong, compassionate performance as Marcus, and American Jew and World War II hero who "got involved" by becoming a volunteer military advisor to the new state of Israel and the country's first general in 2,000 years.
