Summary
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. Jewish-American general Marcus is called to the new state of Israel to build an army capable of withstanding its Arab foes
