Movie Info

Sahara is a World War II film about a British-American military unit that is stranded in the Sahara desert and not only has to fight for survival against the elements, but has to battle the Nazi troops that are closing in on the squadron. Driven by energetic direction, an exciting story and a terrific performance by Humphrey Bogart as the sergeant who is the leader of the troops, Sahara is one of the best World War II dramas.

    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.

    If you watch the film with an understanding of when it was made, and that it's a platform for propaganda, you'll appreciate its finer moments. Those finer moments include gritty and excellent performances from the cast; some well-orchestrated small-unit action sequences, and nice cinematography. The interaction between the various nationalities is surprisingly frank, if you discount the US bias in the film. There's some smart, soldierly, and realistic dialogue here. Humphrey Bogart doesn't usually play this kind of action hero, so it's interesting to see him in the role of the tough sergeant. While not as sweeping as some desert epics, it will make you as thirsty as the soldiers portrayed in it. Good score by Miklos Rozsa.
