Director Billy Wilder handles the varied story elements, countless suspenseful moments and vivid portrayals in excellent fashion.
It has a little something for all tastes, provided you don't give a darn.
An impressive wartime espionage thriller.
A crisp spy thriller.
..sees its protagonist ensnared in a two-fold trap: a literal one and an existential one.
Intelligently told, excellently acted and superbly photographed wartime espionage thriller.
Wilder and Charles Brackett keep the suspense consistently wry and barbed
This cleverly orchestrated espionage/war drama (with a patriotic coda befitting its year of production, 1943) is enhanced by subtle touches of humour, all emanating from character, which makes it a triple joy as a classic from Billy Wilder
Wilder's work is known for its bitter cynicism and able balancing of absurdity with dead seriousness, but this film, while enjoyable, shows an uncertainty of tone.
Billy Wilder's Oscar-nominated espionage thriller, a fictitious account of how Rommel was foiled by the Brits, is entertaining in large measure due to Erich von Stroheim's performance
Early, often overlooked Wilder with a classic Stroheim performance.
Scores on every level.
Literally in the middle of the Sahara Desert a small but desperate drama unfolds during the early days of World War 2: the British are being beaten back by the incomparable Desert Fox, Rommel (von Stroheim, in his very element!) and it looks as if they'll lose Africa altogether. A lone British soldier, delirious with heat exhaustion, beaten in battle, wanders right into the very path of the German war machine. What happens next is expertly handled by Wilder in this forgotten wartime tale of suspense and intrigue. The scene with Anne Baxter and von Stroheim alone in his bedroom is nearly worth the price of admission by itself.
fun wartime espionage thriller set in the sahara. franchot tone makes a fine dashing lead, a british soldier stranded in the desert and overtaken by the nazi high command, with anne baxter as his haughty love interest, a french hotel maid desperate to make a deal with them. and how can one go wrong with erich von stroheim as field marshall rommel. akim tamiroff is a wee bit over the top but there's suspense, comedy, romance, really something for everyone. watch the first scene and see if you're not hooked
