Movie Info

Humphrey Bogart considered this World War II action epic from director Zoltan Korda one of his finest films. Sergeant Joe Gunn (Bogart) is the commander of an American M-3 tank crew allied to the British Eighth Army, which is defeated by the Germans at Tobruk. Joining the scattered retreat across the Libyan desert, Gunn and his two remaining men, Jimmy Doyle (Dan Duryea) and Waco Hoyt (Bruce Bennett) search for water. Instead the tank crew finds an international mix of stragglers, including an

Zoltan Korda's wartime coalition is more Air Force muscularity than In Which We Serve fustiness

Like other WWII adventures, Sahara contains elements of propaganda, but it's expertly directed by Korda, well acted by Bogart and the other men, and strikingly photographed by Rudolph Mate who received an Oscar nomination.

Bogey's presence lends a hard-boiled nature to the picture.

Thanks to the strong performance by Bogey, at his heroic best, it's watchable.

One of the best WWII-era WWII movies… a thoroughly entertaining war actioner starring Humphrey Bogart as a tough American sergeant commanding a tank crew in the Libyan desert.

Bogart puts in another great performance in this WWII classic.

Sahara was a seriously overlooked Humphrey Bogart gem that sadly gets none of the credit it deserves. Its not really Bogart's movie, more of a team effort with great camaraderie and chemistry between the characters and cast respectively. Sahara has great photography and avoids the claustrophobic studio sets of the time. The movie does get a little sentimental but what do you want from a war movie that came out during WWII? All of this and watching a Nazi die in a pretty gruesome way gets you yelling at the screen. A must for any Bogart fan.

a unique and inventive war film, a bit slow on the uptake but an ending that sets the stage for many other war films like it. entertaining characters and interesting dialogue make for a highly recommended and excellent film.
