The Israelis claimed they knock-

Aviv said no Israeli plane was hit,
however. The command did not

It was the first aerial clash be-

Bronson is impressive as Valachi, delivering a
powerful performance which unquestionably will
put him in the Oscar sweepstakes. His aging from
30 to 62 is done smoothly, both in appearance and
movement and he seems to display a rare under-
standing of the character."-Variety

"Terence Young says Bronson
has the quiet authority of Gary
Cooper and the dynamic pres-
ence of Clark Gable. Agent Paul
Kohner says Bronson reminds
him of Humphrey Bogart. Per-
sor'ally, he's the only throwback
to John Garfield. The movie
may well land Charlie on the
top-ten U.S. box-office list."
