Tank Force

Tank Force

Terence Young (1958)

U Certificate


Our Score
The team behind Dr No and From Russia With Love - producer "Cubby" Broccoli, director Terence Young, writer Richard Maibaum, cameraman Ted Moore - were all present and correct for this war drama about the campaign in the Libyan desert. American hunk Victor Mature was imported to play an American who serves as a sergeant in the British army. He organises an escape from an Italian PoW camp and is then captured and tortured by a shifty sheikh in league with the Nazis. Every racial stereotype in the book stands to attention as Mature lurches from one heroic deed to the next, culminating in a joust with a Panzer tank.


An American sergeant is assigned to serve with a British tank corps in North Africa, where he is captured by German forces and identified as the man behind a failed assassination attempt on Josef Goebbels. He refuses to give up without a fight, and plans to lead his fellow PoWs in a break-out. Second World War drama, starring Victor Mature and Leo Genn.
