"Stunningly Realistic Battle Action." -The Hollywood Reporter

There's plenty of top-notch, explosive action in this 1943 "Bogie" classic about a ragtag battalion stranded in the great African desert during World War II. After the fall of the Libyan city of Tobruk, Sergeant Joe Gunn (Humphrey Bogart) and his crew--"Waco" Hoyt (Bruce Bennett), Fred Clarkson (Lloyd Bridges) and Jimmy Doyle (Dan Duryea)--retreat in their tank across the Sahara. Along the way they pick up six Allied stragglers and Tambul (Rex Ingram), a Sudanese corporal and his Italian prisoner. Tambul directs the group to a desert fortress, where they hope to find desperately needed water. A detachment of German soldiers arrives and attempts to barter food for water, but Gunn and his followers refuse. When the Germans attack, Gunn leads his desert-weary men in a desperate battle, hoping that British reinforcements can arrive in time.

    Comments about this product:

    I enjoy most films from the 30's and 40's this fits that need. I really liked seeming a Grant tank. It is somewhat dated as a piece of propaganda but that makes it even more enjoyable. This like going back in time. We will need this kind of films more than ever in the coming years.

          Thanks to TCM, we learned there were no women in the movie to basically preserve the story line. After watching it several times, they made the correct decision!

                I first saw this picture in 1943 when I was 7. I remembered everything including lines like, "You dare to insult the Fuhrer?" "No, that would take a master and I am just a mechanic". "I still like your cigarettes". The theme sang is haunting and I will never forget it. They don't make movies this powerful any more.

                  I think this is one of Bogart's best movies. The cast is super, and the acting isn't over the top (to much). It has always been one of my favorite movies.

                      I feel fortunate that I was able to purchase this film. I am 75Yrs. old and had watched this film growing up all through the years. Initially, I tried to view it on Netflix, but they didn't have it. It is a wonderfully entertaining action movie and one of my favorite Bogart classics. Unfortunately they don't make great cinematic productions like this any more.

                            This is one of my all time favourite films.The production values are quite high,admittedly American equipment stands in for the German (P-51 for Me-109,M-3 half track for SdKfz-250).Other than that,this is pretty much the perfect cinematic endeavour.Highly recommended!

                              This film is just as entertaining today as when I first saw it 50 years ago. Shot at the National Desert Warfare Training Center in the desolate Southern California desert, you really feel they are in North Africa. The only nit-pick I have is the P-51 Mustang used as a substitute Me-109 near the beginning of the film. Otherwise, all the equipment appears to be authentic and the action realistic.
