"Battles of El-Alamein"

6/10

Two engagements in Egypt during World War II were called "Battles of El-Alamein".

In the first battle, British forces stopped a German advance across Egypt at 'el-Alamein'; in the second, the British attacked the German at 'el-Alamein' and finally forced them to retreat to Libya...

Scott Brady played many tough-guy leading roles, mostly in Westerns and other low-budget productions like "El Alamein," photographed in Black and White... Brady is cast here as a 'man of action' under fire with his men and suffering the attacks of Nazi soldiers...

A tempestuous, dynamic performer, from Puerto Rico, is about to be born: Rita Moreno.

Men in a tank

Author: GUENOT PHILIPPE (philippe.guenot@dbmail.com) from France

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.
