Ice Cold in Alex used to show up on the late show on CBC years ago, and ithasalso been on some of the cable channels. It gets better with eachviewing.When the subject of war movies comes up, I always tell people this is myfavourite war movie, and, in my opinion, one of the best - and usuallyget ablanklook. They recognize the cast when I list them, though. And it is a greatcast -Mills, Andrews, Quayle. And I am totally in love with Sylvia Sims in this.(Iguess I must have a thing for beautiful women, with no makeup, sweating inkhakis. I loved Juliette Binoche in Canadian battledress in The EnglishPatient,too - but I digress).

This is simply good storytelling and great character drama in a settingthattests character, with an authentic look and feel and superb B&Wphotographyofthe kind that distinguished so many post-war 'neo-realist'films.There are so many great moments such as van der Poel lifting theambulance,the'surprise' encounter with the SAS (?) man, the Blimpish officer'sencounterwithan 88-mm shell in his Humber staff car, Mill's moments of crisis, stunningcloseups of Sylvia Sims, and and especially that moment in the bar whichmakesyou want to run out for a tall frosty one. Next time I view it, I willindeed have acold Carlsberg waiting in the fridge. Years ago, I was sailing across LakeWinnipeg to Gimli on a slow, hot July day, with little wind, I promisedwewouldenjoy beer and pizza when we finally made it to harbour, and I wasthinkingofthis movie.

I am also a bit of a military vehicle buff, and I like this movie forthat,too - forme, the ambulance - I think it's an Morris-Commecial CS11/30F, or maybe aFord WOT2, but I'd have to see the movie again to be sure - is also oneofthestars. Cranking-up-the-sand-dune is probably my favourite scene with it.TheWages of Fear /Scorcerer comes to mind as a comparablevehicle-as-charactermovie.

Vehicle buffs will also enjoy the anachronism of seeing a Land Roverparkedonthe street in the background of the final shot - the car wasn't inproduction until1947.

The Desert, The Great EnemyReviewed bybkoganbingVote: 10/10

Ice Cold In Alex could never have been made during World War II at the time of the actual fighting. Though it benefits from location shooting in Libya where the action actually took place during the desert war.

The time is after the second fall of Tobruk as the British are fleeing from the Libyan desert to regroup along the El Alamein line that General Auchinleck had staked out. John Mills is a captain with a drinking problem and he's in charge of a party of four driving an ambulance out which consists of RSM Harry Andrews and British nurses Sylvia Sims and Diane Clare. Along the way they pick up Anthony Quayle who is South African. He proves to be of invaluable assistance in getting through German lines twice and in other ways. But Quayle has a mission all his own.

Coming in on the side of the Allies was a matter of considerable debate in the Union Of South Africa. Jan Christian Smuts carried the day for the Allies, but the opposition party which later imposed the apartheid policies were pro-Axis. They won the post war South African elections and held power until Nelson Mandela took over.

The desert turns out to be the real enemy for this little band and they all pull together. One of the company does not make it to the end.

In a way that Erwin Rommel would have liked, the Afrika Korps is not portrayed as inhuman monsters by any means. Interestingly enough in the same year Ice Cold In Alex came out, The Young Lions had a German officer machine-gunning helpless British stragglers just like this party is. Maximilian Schell was the Nazi who did the deed in that film and both of these films rank as among my favorite war films ever.

The title refers to a cold beer that Mills is determined to have at a favorite bar of his in Alexandria. Ice Cold In Alex has some flawless performances by the entire cast, the desert travelers mesh very well as an ensemble group. The film ranks among the best work that all of the principal players ever did. And the filming in the actual location in Libya was able to blend some black and white newsreel footage in to the story without a seam showing.

I saw this film when it first came out in theater in 1958. I was impressed with it then and even more so now.

I am not a great fan of war genre, but this film is brilliant forseveral reasons. First of all the film is well acted by a cast who knowwhat good acting is. This can be particularly said of the late Sir JohnMills; a dedicated actor who really knew how to play all his characterswell.

The film is also great for its suspense, which kept me gripped all theway to Alexandria.

However, what makes the film stand out, is how the adversity of ahostile environment, such as the dessert brings out the positivequalities of human nature, which serve to unite man -and woman -kind.This puts the idea of war into perspective as insignificant when facedwith nature's raw and hostile conditions. It illustrates that as humanswe need to unite and work together to combat adversity, whilerespecting the power of nature.
