I first saw this film many years ago when I was a teenager and instantly fell in love with it. Over the years it could be seen on tv quite frequently but then as so often happens the powers that be stopped making it available.
As the film begins we see Stephen Boyd's charactor hunting Lisa as though she were some sort of criminal, but then the unthinkable happens and he begins to see how deeply she longs to return to her homeland and begins a long and illegal journey with her to make her dream come true making himself a wanted man himself in the process.
I don't want to give away what happens but suffice it to say that as the story progresses the viewer is drawn in and begins to want that happy ending we all hope each film has. In it's own way it does happen here but only with a great deal of love and sacrifice.
For those who are looking for a film with integrity, a good story, good acting and a few twists and turns to keep your attention, then this is it.

This picture was released in 1962 and was shot in the old Cinemascope process. (2.35:1 ratio) The video Fox is releasing has been cropped down to (1.33:1 ratio) and half the picture is missing. This picture is not worth the money and you'll be sorry if you buy it. Fox should make a letterbox version in 2.35:1 and show up the entire film.

I saw "Lisa" exactly one time, many decades ago, when I was a kid. I watched it on a black and white TV, late at night, interrupted by many annoying commercials. I've never forgotten "Lisa": Dolores Hart played a Holocaust survivor determined, by any means necessary, to get to Palestine at a time when the British were interdicting such arrivals. Ruggedly handsome Stephen Boyd was Inspector Jongman. He began by hindering Lisa's pilgrimage and ended up helping her. For comic relief, there was Hugh Griffith, a smuggler who used a tennis racket in his ongoing battle with the bats that invaded his exotic Tangiers apartment at dusk.

Most importantly, I never shook the feeling that the film aroused in me - this film literally made me sick, and terrified, but it also moved and inspired me.

In the intervening years, I read somewhere that "Lisa" was an early attempt to depict the Holocaust in a mainstream Hollywood movie. That just increased my curiosity. Some kind soul has finally posted "Lisa" on youtube and I watched it there.

The title sequence appears over train tracks, rushing rapidly beneath the camera. This allusion to trains rushing to concentration camps felt heavy-handed. The film opens in 1946. Lisa is the pouty, passive cargo of a Nazi white slaver. There's some implausible cloak and dagger stuff - the daggers are SS, engraved "blood and honor" - and for sale by the Nazi white slaver, a villain with obviously dyed blonde hair and an obviously fake German accent. The Nazi dies; Lisa escapes via a fire escape; investigators suspect that Inspector Jongman murdered the Nazi. The chase / road movie is on. Lisa and Jongman begin a cat-and-mouse odyssey, via Dutch canal barge and smuggler ship, to Palestine.

Lisa is the poignant drama of a Dutch Jewish girl who is trying to escape to Lebanon and finds herself in the clutches of an ex-Nazi who is also white slaver. Rescued by a cop with a guilty conscience, the police officer vows to help her escape to Lebanon.

This was a fascinating drama with an interesting cast, and some surprising plot twists. I was engrossed from start to finish, and the scenery and acting well done. The ending I felt was a tad abrupt and could've been a bit better. Overall, this was a great film.

I saw "Lisa" many years ago and forgot both the name of the movie and the stars, but I never forgot the emotional impact of the story. Today I stumbled across it on TV and watched it again, finding the same emotional impact. We must never let the world forget the Holocaust and the survivors all have a story that is important for us to remember. Palestine and its beginnings are part of this story.

one of my favorite films - a thoughtful and tender story of a young survivor of the nazi extermination camps seeking to slip past the british blockade and join other jews in palestine - the future Israel - fortunately - she finds an ally in a Dutch police inspector

appropriately - the heart of the story is provided by the lovely and serene Dolores Hart - one of the most promising young actresses of her generation - she brings to the young damaged woman - gentleness - with a touch of fire

in my favorite performance of his - Stephen Boyd provides a gritty determination as the Dutch police inspector with a guilty conscience

there are many familiar faces from the British film industry - Donald Pleasence - Leo MacKern - Hugh Griffith - Harry Andrews - and a very young Robert Stephens in a lively performance as an "unimportant" british agent of some sort

i'm particularly fond of the homey scenes of the escaping pair during their barge trip down the canals of europe - which also prove that authentic locations were used - but even the set pieces have a pleasing foreign texture to them - however - the direction and photography are good but not great - as is the music

like the landscapes - the plot has a certain freshness - characters and scenes are often memorable - while the story doesn't built to a explosive climax - it's rational and stays on an even keel

most of all - it has dolores hart - in a role that hints at the religious sincerity that would soon steal her from hollywood - to a convent - where she remains to this day
