On Movies Made in 'Akka: Not just Exodus

From: Northwest BahaiLibrary
Most have seen the movie by Otto Preminger, "Exodus", starring Paul
Newman, which was filmed in 'Akka, Israel in 1960.

However, that is not the only movie filmed in 'Akka.
A 1990 movie "A Man Called Sarge" also was filmed there.

Low budget and described as a "wacky comedy," the film, of which there is a clip or two on YouTube, is almost painful for me to watch -- or at least the scenes filmed in the Caravansari and the Citadel are, given the holy significance for Baha'is of these locations. -gw
