An Old Theme Well Done
5 October 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

The tale of an army patrol holding a desert outpost has been filmed many times.Two examples that come to mind are John Ford's"The Last Patrol" and Ealing's "Nine Men".Whilst this film is not quite up to their standard this is nevertheless an exciting war film with plenty of action sequences well staged.The cast is good.Leo Genn as a Major concerned for the welfare of his men.Michael Medwin,playing somewhat against type,as a by the rules young lieutenant,and Kieron Moore,who for some reason wont come down from the water tower unless he is either fried to a frazzle or blasted out of there.Actually he rings the one false note about the film.You would suspect that the first thing that the German tanks would destroy is the water tower,yet it remains standing till almost the end.Percy Herbert is also in the film.A desert war film without him would be unthinkable.
