EDWARD G. ROBINSON, noted star of stage and screen (left),
is shown with - Prime Minister _ DAVID BEN-GURION - during
his visit to Israel, where he made a documentary film for the
Israel Bond Organization. The film, which is expected to
stimulate the sale of Israel Bonds throughout the United
States and Canada, was written by Leon Uris, author of
"Exodus," best-selling novel on Israel's War of Independence.
Robinson, who has been prominently identified with the Israel
Bond campaign since its inception, contributed his services.
The picture, filmed in Cinemascope and in color, is being
produced for exhibition in theaters, on television, and at
