The film was made before the mythology was fully developed so it shows the
attempt to illegally enter the Palestine Mandate by Jewish refugees, the
bombing of the King David Hotel, the role of Irgun, and so forth. Sure it is
Hollywood, but a movie is not going to be made in 2014 that shows Israel's
roots in terrorism.
