Director Robert Wise's thrilling World War Two adventure has Richard Burton as a Scottish Army officer put in charge of a disparate band of ANZAC troops in North Africa. German commander Field Marshal Rommel has the British in retreat and all that stands in his way to the Suez Canal is the city of Tobruk. Thrilling, boys own stuff with James Mason playing Rommel for the second time.
