Action-Filled War Movie
on June 22, 2011
SEA OF SAND (1958), also known as DESERT PATROL, was shot in the Libyan Desert and takes place just before the climatic North Africa battle of El Alamein.
Michael Craig leads a secret commando mission against Rommel's forces. The target is a German fuel dump, located hundreds of miles behind enemy lines, and their job is to destroy it. However, Craig and his men also discover that the Germans are equipped with many new tanks, a fact that desperately must be reported to their superiors. Unfortunately, with their radio out, their vehicles damaged or destroyed and German patrols hot on their trail, accomplishing that is not going to be an easy task.
Directed by Guy Green and co-starring Richard Attenborough and John Gregson, SEA OF SAND is an exciting, action-filled drama that features some stunning desert photography.
