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 »
Somebody "up there" does like something about this movie...
I remember seeing it once about 40 years ago when I was about 7, and it just stuck with me: The image of those guys digging in that sand dune and finding that cool WWII Afrikakorp tank with the witch painted on the turret; pure adventure. I never knew the title, but today I decided to do a plot search on IMDB and finally discovered it after all these years. I do remember it as being ultimately unsatisfying, but it's amazing how one solid image can last in a kid's mind. Will try to rent it for old time's sake.
