Lawrence Durrell, Sophia Loren and an Israeli kibbutz

Taken from The Calgary Herald, Jan. 19, 1966, about the filming in Israel of Durrell’s short novel Judith, which was written as a movie script. I believe Judith is republished in honour of Durrell’s centenary, if anyone has any more information please post in the comments.

It must have been quite something to have kibbutzniks and IDF national service soldiers roped in as extras to the movie. I wonder if anyone remembers filming with Loren?

(I’ll write more later, for now I just wanted to post these images!). To see the images larger, and to be able to read the text, just click on them.
