| Drama, War
During WW2 in North Africa, an American sergeant serving with the British 8th Army is captured by the Germans but he hatches various plans of escape from the POW camp.
This film was directed by Terence Young who helmed three of the first four James Bond pictures: 'Dr. No' (1962), 'From Russia with Love' (1963), and 'Thunderball' (1965). 'Tank Force!' aka 'No Time to Die' (1958) was a Warwick Films production produced by Irving Allen and Albert R. 'Cubby' Broccoli, the latter being a James Bond film series co-founding producer along with Harry Saltzman.
Sgt. David H. Thatcher:
He's not worth saving, not even for THAT!
About 15 minutes into the movie when Mature is being questioned by the Germans he is shown to extend his hands to show that his fingernails had been removed as an apparent torture method. The scenes leading up to this, while he is talking to his captures, shows that his nails are complete.
"To the War Office. The Royal Armoured Corps and The Queen's Bays (2nd Dragoon Guards) who made possible the tank sequence. We extend our grateful thanks."
The American and British versions of the film had different running times clocking in at 86 minutes and 103 minutes respectively. This was a difference of about seventeen minutes with the English print being longer than the one Stateside.
