| Interesting and gripping desert war tale
I first saw this movie in early 1950's in a local movie house that specialized in older movies. Hadn't heard of it before, and was delighted it was so good. A real "sleeper" from the past. I liked it very much then, and 15 or so years later, I caught it on TV, and managed to tape it. A classic soldiers survival story done right under John Ford's direction. The solid group of actors led by Victor McLaughlin do an excellent job here as British soldiers in Mesopotamia during World War I. Unusual role by Boris Karloff is believable. The enemy Arabs are unseen and pick off the soldiers one by one, adding to the suspense and drama. Good character development. I enjoyed it and awarded a "9".
