Cast a Giant Shadow
Kirk Douglass plays an American officer who becomes commander of Israeli forces during the 1948 war to establish the Jewish state. Douglass is a tortured tough guy, but we love the clip above, if only because we never thought we'd hear John Wayne toast, "l'Chaim."
so this one's a stretch, but we couldn't resist. Woody Allen takes on
Sylvester Stallone in his 1971 movie, Bananas. And he almost wins!
Once Upon a Time in America
epic story of Jewish gangsters (with the best names ever: Noodles,
Cockeye, Patsy) coming of age in New York's Lower East Side. 3 minutes
into this clip, things get bloody.
Jefferson Carver, aka "the Hebrew Hammer," is an orthodox Jew who kills
Santa Claus and joins forces with Esther Bloomenbergensteinenthal to
save Hanukkah. This clip is awesome. That is all.
Don't Mess with the Zohan
Adam Sandler plays an Israeli commando who starts a new life in New York, as a hairstylist. Also, he feels no pain.
This 2008 film tells the story of a set of Jewish brothers hiding out in the forests of Eastern Europe following the Nazi invasion of Poland in 1939. In this clip, Liev Schrieber is like an Ashkenazi Rambo.
