Quotes from

Ari Ben Canaan: A year is a long time in the life of a pretty woman. Have you found another man?
Kitty Fremont: Nothing serious.
Ari Ben Canaan: Why not?
Kitty Fremont: Many reasons. On is that my husbands work took up his whole life and I presume that's good or at least most men seem to seem to think so. But I think that a man whose work is his whole life is only half a man.
Ari Ben Canaan: And you want a whole one?
Kitty Fremont: Exactly. The other half of his life must be a woman, what else?


Dov Landau: [explaining to the leaders of the Irgun how he survived Auschwitz] The Germans used me -- like you would use a woman.


Barak Ben Canaan: God, don't let my brother die at the end of a British rope.

Facts about

David Opatoshu's character Akiva Ben Canaan, commander of the Irgun, is based on the real-life Menachem Begin who later became prime minister of Israel. Opatoshu portrayed Begin in Raid on Entebbe.
At the film's premiere, as the movie neared its third hour with the end not yet in sight, comedian Mort Sahl stood up from his seat in the packed theater and shouted, "Otto, let my people go!" The incident quickly became a popular piece of Hollywood lore.
Sal Mineo actively sought the role of Dov Landau despite being told that he did not look Jewish or anything like the character.
