Lavish and spectacular, Cast A Giant Shadow is based on the true story of Colonel Mickey Marcus (Kirk Douglas), the American soldier who served as an adviser in the fight to establish the state of Israel in 1948. Marcus must decide whether to settle into peacetime America or follow his more natural, combative instincts abroad ‒ a dilemma symbolized by a love triangle involving his wife (Angie Dickinson) and a beautiful sabra (Senta Berger) whom he falls for in Palestine. Cast a Giant Shadow is an impressive example of epic 1960s cinema, filmed in the Middle Eastern locations in which they occurred. Also starring John Wayne, Yul Brynner, and Frank Sinatra.
