Exodus (MGM 1960)


Thanks Elmer's Brother for this suggestion!

The struggle for a people to return to their home, and the rebirth of a great nation; Exodus starring Paul Newman and Eva Marie-Saint delivers with drama, action, and suspense and is Edge's Conservative Movie of the Week! Here is a movie review from IMDb!

The theme is the founding of the state of Israel. The action begins on a ship filled with Jewish immigrants bound for Israel who are being off loaded on Cyprus. An Intelligence officer succeeds in getting them back on board their ship only to have the harbor blocked by the British with whom they must negotiate. The second part of the film is about the situation in Israel as independence is declared and most of their neighbors attack them.

Here is the trailer!



Here is the theme from the movie, also available on Edge's Movie Music!

Kev,

Yah, it was pretty cool! Glad Elmer told me about it!

Brooke,

Can you imagine a movie like this being made today?

Elmer,

Thanks again for the suggestion! If you got anymore let me know!

I've seen it too but it was years ago so I'm going to NetFlix right now and adding it to my queue. Thanks, Edge! :)

Z said...

I had to play it on the piano for SO many events, I can't listen to it anymore.

I just got DannyDarko on Beamish's recommendation but haven't had a chance to watch yet...anybody else like it as much as he does? Of course, it was probably tongue in cheek when he said that and I'll be SO ticked off!!! :-)

EDGE said...

Elmer,

Hmmm, maybe playlist has something. I'll check it for ya!

Are you pickin' up the pieces of Shania's heart these days? She's always been a hotty! But......... Scarlett does it for the Edgeman.

Angel,

Thanks Angel! I had a feeling you would like this!

Elmers Brother said...

I told her to dump Mutt a long time ago...I mean with a name like that...

Elmers Brother said...

Shania


Sara

EDGE said...

Elmer,

Scarlett's got 'em beat! :O)

Elmers Brother said...

you see Scarlett may be more attractive to you perhaps because she is younger but to these middle aged eyes...younger isn't always better

EDGE said...

Elmer,

I hear ya. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't kick Shania out for eating crackers in bed. I hope Scarlett ages that gracefully.
