Station Six – Sahara

Film, Action and adventure

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.
