This tough, action-packed World War II drama starring Humphrey Bogart as the leader of a tank crew stranded in the Sahara with the Nazis hot on their trail, is considered by many as one of the best of its genre. The film eventually went on to spawn many imitators and was given the remake treatment in 1995 for cable television. Columbia/TriStar Home Entertainment's DVD has given the film an excellent, if modest, treatment for the digital age. Presented in its original full screen aspect ratio (1.33:1) and with its English mono soundtrack intact, the transfer is overall very good, though at times the film's age cannot be disguised. But the remastered print definitely gives the film a shine it has previously lacked for some time. The black-and-white contrast is sharp and never too glaring. The disc also includes trailers for other Columbia released films, some nice vintage advertising (lobby cards), filmographies, and talent files, and some informative liner notes detailing Sahara's production and release.

Classic WWII action flick with an excellent cast. Multi-national allies highlighted but it didn't take away from the action. Good clarity of video and audio, however, I hope someone restores this film to clean up minor snow and give it bluray clarity. Highly recommend this flick.

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.
