For his first film outside his native Poland, director Alexander Ford took his camera crew all the way to Palestine. Originally titled Sabra, Chalutzim delineates the difficulties awaiting European Jews upon their arrival in the Holy Land. Against all odds, a small band of settlers manages to survive, if not prosper. The cast is largely drawn from the ranks of the Palestinian Habima Players, all of whom deliver excellent performances. When Chalutzim was first screened in New York, it was accompanied by the following opening-title disclaimer: "The English titles were not written in the U.S.: Hence some typographical errors."
