    One of my favorite childhood authors...I must have read EXODUS 5-6 times during junior high, twenty years ago. Quite a breathtaking epic.

    While the film was less successful, it had a memorable score and hypnotized me with the beauty of Eva Marie Saint.

    Leon Uris died of natural causes, age 78. Quite a storyteller.

    One more very fine writer has gone on. I'll always remember Exodus and the beautiful theme song it had.
