4 stars out of 5 -- Mines and quicksand serve suspense but it's the intimate study of close-knit characters under duress that sucks you in.
The British ICE COLD IN ALEX was released in the US as DESERT ATTACK. John Mills stars as Captain Anson, a grumbling alcoholic sent on a WW2 mission to Alexandria. Travelling to his destination by ambulance, Anson becomes acquainted with his fellow passengers, nurses Sister Diane Murdoch (Sylvia Syms) and Sister Denise Norton (Mary Clare) and South African officer Captain Van Der Poel (Anthony Quayle). One of these worthies is a German spy-and only two of the passengers will survive until the fade-out. For its American release, ICE COLD IN ALEX was not only given a new title, but was also trimmed from 132 minutes to 79.
