WWII actioner in which Bogart's tank corps sergeant, retreating from El Alamein, picks up a motley crew of stragglers and survivors of assorted creeds and colours, who band together to defend a desert well against 500 Germans. Watchable more for its strong cast than for its credibility or its pretensions: the script was adapted from a Russian movie called The Thirteen by John Howard Lawson (one of the Hollywood Ten), who saw the mixed ethnic group as an allegory of brotherhood.
