cast a giant shadow (1966) - melvin sharvelson

The fictionalized story of how David 'Mickey' Marcus helped defend the State Of Israel in the Arab - Israeli war in 1948, with a top notch cast (Kirk Douglas, Frank Sinatra, John Wayne, Yul Brynner etc), the premise of Cast a Giant Shadow certainly sounds good. Unfortunately, it is pretty boring, too long, and has the dubious gift of making the non fictional aspects of the story look fictional.  Not worth wasting your time on.
