Greek Actor Plays Israeli Hero in Film

HOLLYWOOD — Stathis Gial-
lelis, the now 24-year old Greek
who made his phenomenal screen
debut in Elia Kazan's "America,
America," was in town on a whirl-
wind trip to the States after com-
pleting his co-starring role in "Cast
a Giant Shadow," the Mickey
Marcus epic filmed by the Mirisch
company on actual location in
Giallelis, a Golden Globe Award
nominee for his first movie, met
in an exclusive interview session
with members of the Hollywood
Foreign Press Association, the
group honoring him for "America,
America" two years ago.
The Greek actor was enthusiastic
about his stay in Israel where he
spent the first two and a half

months learning the art of infantry
warfare with the armed forces of
the new country before going in
front of the cameras to portray
the key tole of "Ram," a Palmach
leader in the war of independence
who has to prove his physical
strength to an Arab chief (Haym
Topol) in order to win his coopera-
tion. Ram keeps his vow to blow
up a munition cache across the
border in Syrian territory.
Asked whether the Israelis ob-
jected that a Greek was portraying
a hero of their victorious war,
Giallelis replied why should they,
since Hebrew thespian Topol (of
"Sallah") was now enacting the
part of a Bedouin chieftain. To
Giallelis, motion pictures are an
art of international communication.
Giallelis, who comes from an
ancient land that had waged
a war of 100 years against
the Turks, appreciates Israel's
struggle against the overwhelm-
ing forces of six armies. He
feels a deep kinship with the
young officers of the Israeli
army of today, to him a select
body of intelligent leaders who
are both friendly and firm.
He told us that he went to the
Argentine some two years ago
after completing "America, Amer-
ica," to portray the lead in Torre-
Nilsson's "The Eaves-dropper,"
three days in the life of a South
American Nazi. Giallelis admits

he portrayed the racial bigot so
realistically that he was disturbed
by his own performance of the
cold, snake-like young man, the
reincarnation of evil. Yet, Giallelis
feels that the picture itself has an
important message, as did "Amer-
ica, America" and now, "Cast a
Giant Shadow," that he had to play
the part of the Nazi — because
there was no one else to do it.
As to the Mickey Marcus film,
Giallelis says that the production
company had the full cooperation
of press and public in Israel where
the picture inaugurated the brand-
new studios of Herzlia before going
out on actual location in the
Judean hills where the "Burma
Road" sequences were photo-
graphed outside of Jerusalem.
Giallelis strikes us as an ideal-
istic young man who likes Israel
because he loves freedom.
