Saturday Matinee: The Desert Rats (1953)

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 26, 2008

Rommel has the British in retreat on his way to the Suez Canal. All that stands in his way is Tobruk, held by a vastly out numbered force of Australian troops. Richard Burton leads these troops on daring raids against Rommel, keeping him off balance as they earn the nickname ‘The Desert Rats’.

These types of services works very well for me, because I live out of range of over-the-air television signals and have no interest in purchasing a satellite receiver. Thank God that I have had Verizon DSL since March.
