Nine Men ★★½ 1943

Nine British troops must fend for themselves in the African desert when their supply convoy truck is destroyed. Besieged by Axis forces, they find a decrepit fort and attempt to hold out by making it seem as if they have more men and ammo than they do. Well-done British production has suspense aplenty. Similarly set and themed “Sahara” would make a nice complement for a double feature. 68m/B VHS . GB Jack Lambert, Gordon Jackson, Frederick Piper, Grant Sutherland, Eric Micklewood, John Varley, Harry Watt, Bill Blewitt, Jack Horseman, Richard Wilkinson; C: Roy Kellino; M: John Grenwood.
