Presented by the Buffalo Jewish Federation:
Eva Marie Saint and Paul Newman star in Otto Preminger’s 1960 epic blockbuster about the 1948 founding of the State of Israel.
A major success at the box office, EXODUS shaped American attitudes toward Israel for decades after its release.
Today the film is most notable for its Academy Award winning score by Ernest Gold, as well as for the part it played in ending the Hollywood blacklist, after Preminger insisted that Dalton Trumbo should receive a screenwriter credit for his work.

Based on the Leon Uris best-seller, Exodus (1960) is an epic tale about the late-1940s creation of the state of Israel.
Passionately directed by Otto Preminger and adapted by Dalton Trumbo, the film features an all-star cast – Paul Newman, Eva Marie Saint, Ralph Richardson, Peter Lawford, Sal Mineo, Jill Haworth, Lee J. Cobb, David Opatoshu, and John Derek – in a sprawling and phenomenally moving narrative underscored by the Academy Award®-winning music of the great Ernest Gold.
