If you are interested in learning a bit of Libyas history, but prefer a movie over a documentary.. here's one for you Very Happy

starring Stars like Anthony Quinn (as Omar Mukhtar), Rod Steiger, Oliver Reed, Irene Papas, John Gieldug, etc..

Synopsis:
This movie tells the story of Omar Mukhtar, an Arab Muslim rebel who fought against the Italian conquest of Libya in WWI. It gives western viewers a glimpse into this little-known region and chapter of history, and exposes the savage means by which the conquering army attempted to subdue the natives.

Between two worlds wars, a struggle for freedom took place in the African desert. This movie is the historicaly accurate story about the Libyan resistance leader, Omar Mukhtar, who led the Libyan resistance against the Italian opressors from 1911-1931. The movie takes place during the reign of Mussolini.
