Excellent story, well-acted
This is a fine little film about a rag-tag group of Allied soldiers in the north African desert struggling to find water while staving off the Germans. It's not only the 'good guys' versus the 'bad guys,' but the good guys versus time and nature. Bogart is great, as one would expect, but the supporting players do well, too, especially Rex Ingram as Tambul. A lesser-known movie, unusual considering Bogart's involvement, with a strong story and an interesting twist at the end. Interesting, too, that it was produced and released in 1943, during the height of WWII. If you enjoy films like 'Flight of the Phoenix' you'll enjoy this. Rocommended.Was this review helpful?
