Storyline

Surviving a plane crash in the Sahara, four oilmen find and manage to repair a German Afrika Corps tank which had been buried in the sand since WWII. Heading toward a French Foreign Legion outpost, they encounter a nomadic Arab tribe who believe the oilmen have found the treasure of Calipha, a rival Arab leader. If trying to acquire the jewels by guile doesn't work, the Arabs are prepared to kill the oilmen to get the stolen treasure. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

The Steel Lady
28 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this film in the late fifties on TV. When I decided to track it down all I could remember was a group of guys uncover a tank in the desert, manage to get it up and running and blast a few desert nomads. For some reason I also knew Rod Cameron was the star.Being a 16mm film collector I asked around and a fellow in California told me the title when I provided him with as much of the story line as I remembered. Some time later another friend helped me find a VHS copy. Boy did it bring back memories. Since that time with the help of E-bay, I've been able to find a complete set of lobby cards, the press book, the insert, the half sheet, the one sheet, the three sheet and a 16mm print. Its great to able to watch it on an eight foot movie screen. If there's any interest I may be able to get the 16mm print transfered to tape or DVD. I can be contacted at Knightra49@hotmail.com Update. I now have The Steel Lady on DVD, very good quality.
