Tobruk is a superior men-on-a-mission movie with lavish production values and a good set-up even if it has little resemblance to history (there was a Second World War and the Nazis were the bad guys, but that's probably about the only thing you won't need to take with a pinch of salt), with Canuck Rock Hudson sprung from a Vichy French prison ship in Algiers by George Peppard's German Jews fighting for the Allies. Seems he's the only one who can guide them on a raid on the German fuel dumps at Tobruk along with a raiding party disguised as Afrika Corps troops transporting British prisoners of war led by Nigel Green's casually anti-Semitic British colonel. Neither the British nor the Jews particularly trust each other because of that nasty business in Palestine, with Hudson pretty much taking the William Holden role from Bridge on the River Kwai here as a reluctant buffer between them while at a remove from their obsessions. Naturally, there's a traitor in their midst and enemy patrols, minefields and their own airplanes to be avoided, with a Nazi-sympathising Irish spy and his daughter thrown in to complicate matters further and add a bit of half-hearted female interest amid all the testosterone.

Obligatory war movie regulars Norman Rossington, Percy Herbert and Jack Watson are present and correct in the ranks (Sam Kydd and Gordon Jackson were presumably busy that month on another war movie) and there's a memorable score by Bronislau Kaper, billed here as Bronislaw Kaper. It's impressively directed by Arthur Hiller with a well-crafted script by Leo V.

This film opens with an attempt to put the action in its historical context. Set during the North Africa campaign of WW2, it is ostensibly about disrupting Rommel's supply lines, which were already overextended, to prevent the Germans defeating the British in Egypt. Thereafter it's all about a group of men on their mission to destroy a German fuel dump in Tobruk. Rock Hudson is the slightly insubordinate Canadian Major who knows the ground and the locals, Nigel Green is the upper-class British Colonel who puts his devotion to the mission first at all costs, and George Peppard is a German Jew fighting for the British. None of the three really trusts or likes each other, with Hudson's and Green's characters verging on the anti-Semitic towards Peppard's. This gives the film its edge, and without it, it'd be pretty much a standard Desert War cliché of mine-fields, strafing fighters and avoiding enemy patrols. There's a bit of cloak and dagger with spies and traitors, and a fairly effective Big Fight at the end. All in all a good solid WW2 film with pretty good performances all round (even if I'm not entirely convinced by Peppard's German accent!)

Bought this Italian version and it is fine on UK blu ray players, the film can be played as the normal UK English version with normal English as you would see on TV, Just select on the menu for that option and its fine. A great was classic not on blu ray in UK.

I purchased the film as its one I have always enjoyed. Unfortunately this DVD did not function properly. When using the menu for language selection its all in Italian and regardless of what I did kept getting English Language with Italian subtitles. I then tried just playing the film without visiting the menu and low and behold in English and no subtitles brilliant I thought.
However after an hour the picture froze and that was that as none of the buttons on the remote would work apart from the red off button. After three attempts at getting past the hour mark with the same problem I made arrangements for the film to be returned.

To my mind, this is an under-rated should be classic war film. The plot is fairly simple; a group of allied commandos disguised as POWs attempt to infiltrate the German lines in North Africa in an effort to destroy the German fuel bunkers at Tobruk. These fuel reserves are vital to the tanks of the German war machine and the allied command has assembled a crack team of soldiers to pull off the job. The cast features a number of stars; Rock Hudson plays a Canadian Officer with vast experience of desert warfare conditions, Nigel Green plays the Colonel who has put the mission together and George Peppard plays a German Jew working for the British who, along with his fellow jews, take the role of German guards escorting the POWs back to Tobruk. The interaction between these characters is laced with mutual mis-trust which adds an extra edge to the film; especially when a traitor puts the mission at risk. The film features several action-packed battle scenes before reaching its climax at the port of Tobruk. This copy is only let down by poor editing; the original widescreen version featured subtitles for the German dialogue which has been lost in the cutdown picture and one or two scenes (especially the last) loose some of their impact where they have been shortened.
In summary, if you like war films then this is one for you.
