Sahara is a 1943 World War II film that focuses on the crew of US Army M3 Lee tank, commanded by U.S. Army Sergeant Joe Gunn (Humphrey Bogart) that becomes separated from its unit during a general retreat. In the course of their journey, the crew picks up a motley collection of stragglers, among them a British doctor, four assorted Commonwealth troops, and a Free French corporal. Later, they pick up a Sudanese sergeant major and his Italian prisoner, who volunteers to lead them to a well at Hassan Barani. As the well is completely dried up by the time the Germans arrive, a standoff and battle of wills begins. The 1943 film is based on an incident seen in the 1936 Soviet film The Thirteen, which ironically was itself a remake of 1934 movie The Lost Patrol. Making the things even more confusing, Sahara itself would inspire a 1995 remake starring James Belushi.
