Time Out says

On an isolated oil pipeline station in the desert, five men bicker and squabble in the appalling heat and boredom. Then the incredible happens: a large American car crashes in their midst, one of its two occupants a beautiful blonde siren (Baker). Her presence drives the men crazy with lust for her, and with increasing antagonism towards each other. From a script by Bryan Forbes and Brian Clemens, the underrated Holt directs with a tight grip, and clearly delights in such moments as the frisson created by Baker's bra-strap falling casually from her shoulder. It's an unexpected black sheep of British cinema, not least for its unrepressed sense of anger and strident eroticism.
