The Journey to Golda's Balcony (2004) - Directed By Yves Gerard Issembert. Starring: Tovah Feldshuh, Alec Baldwin. Produced and Written By Yves Gerard Issembert. On October 6, 1973, on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, Egypt and Syria launched a bold and ingeniously conceived surprise attack against Israel. After three days of intense, bloody combat, an unprepared Israel was fighting for its life. At the center of the fight was Prime Minister Golda Meir, and at the center of William Gibson's Broadway play Golda's Balcony, Tovah Feldshuh travels in search of the core of Golda, the woman who presided over Israel's creation and one of its darkest hours. This film is a rare, behind the scenes look at the preparation of an actor taking on the role of a lifetime, and of a Prime Minister taking on the greatest crisis of her life. With never before seen interviews with former Heads of State, Commanders in the field, the Ambassador to the U.S., interwoven with scenes from the hit play, this is The Journey to Golda's Balcony. Starring Tovah Feldshuh, two time Emmy nominee for "Law & Order" and "Holocaust" and narrated by Oscar nominee Golda Meir, born Golda Mabovitch, 3 May 1898 to 8 December 1978, known as Golda Meyerson from 1917 to 1956) was the fourth prime minister of the State of Israel. Meir was elected Prime Minister of Israel on 17 March 1969, after serving as Minister of Labour and Foreign Minister. Israel's first and the world's third female to hold such an office, she was described as the "Iron Lady" of Israeli politics years before the epithet became associated with British prime minister Margaret Thatcher. Former prime minister David Ben-Gurion used to call Meir "the best man in the government"; she was often portrayed as the "strong-willed, straight-talking, gray-bunned grandmother of the Jewish people".
