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

The Steel Lady in the title is an American M-24 Chafee light tank dressed up to resemble a WWII German tank. See more »
Internal views of the tank naturally show a much roomier rendition of a WWII tank's condition, which is an understandable compromise to accommodate filming; however, behind the main gun mount, we see no storage or rack for shells. Rather, the back of the turret is smooth, round and void of even an empty mount. See more »
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.
