Men in a tank

I waited for this are item since a while. I knew it was a Fred S Sears's film, so not a masterpiece. Produced by Wallace Mac Donald, and not Sam Katzman, it's a powerful actioner, but rather corny, as you can guess, even written by Horace mac Coy; not his kind of stories, far from the crime investigating journalists ones. Nothing to do with BEAST OF WAR, about men in a tank during the Afghanistan war, the Russian one, during the eighties. This film is only 66mn length, so you ca watch it without boredom. I don't understand that this movie has not been released more times, on TCM for instance.

Above all, it's only a Fred Sear's film, and not a Samuel Fuller's one.
